How To Feed Seeds of Happiness, Success & Responsibility
Last time, I discussed the importance of understanding that must not feed the weeds in our home. This simply means that we must understand how strong the tendency is to get ‘pulled’ into the negative behaviors (i.e., weeds). If we repeatedly get caught in this trap, then we are feeding the weeds. And this is bad. Why? Because the weeds will get big and strong. None of us want that.
Today, we shift to the good ‘seeds’ we want to nurture in our homes. This includes all the moments you see in your children that you value and want to expand, such as a moment of kindness, cooperation, follow-through or even just laughter and joy. Any moment that you want to see more of…is the moments we are talking about today.

Warning: This will be a bit exhausting. So be prepared. But what you invest in this will reap benefits that last a lifetime.
Finally, it’s important to emphasize that the real secret here is to combine the concepts from last week (starving weeds), with now starting to feed seeds. The two together will show you how to unlock the hidden power you have as a parent. You will experience more influence, see positive behaviors expand and build a better, happier relationship with your children.
