Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen things your children need to hear you say. Some are obvious, some not so easy, all are important.
1. I love you
2. God loves you
3. I'm proud of you
4. You can do it
5. Don't give up
6. Please
7. Thank you
8. Pardon me (banish "huh" - just my litle pet peeve!)
9. I need a hug
10. What do you think you should do?
11. You're a good person
12. I'm sorry
13. No
What would you add to the list?

Great list! I would add "Yes" to the list - so often I say "no" out of habit or because it's too much effort rather than because "no" is needed. Sometimes it's important to say "yes" and add joy to our children's lives, and to ours as we experience the desires of their heart with them.
