During every interaction you Teach, Encourage, Listen, and Love according to your own thoughts and feelings. Others may influence your words and actions, but ultimately as an adult you decide your words and actions for better or worse. You choose how you think and respond in the moment or in a future moment.
With children, the story is a little different. A child definitely interacts with honest thoughts and feelings; however, they need others to TELL them better throughout childhood so they can ultimately decide on their own.
Help Teach, Encourage, Listen, and Love the youth to think and choose wiser. Help TELL the youth to think and choose wiser.
Children need someone to TELL them…. well, don’t we all!
Have a blessed day by being more TELLing!
