Parents. It is time to be proactive. I find that most parents worry about introducing conversations with their kids too early. I find the opposite problem to be the biggest predictor of future failure (as parents and in our kids actions as they mature).
Be intentional. Start the conversations when they are 1, 2, and even 3 years old. How? Make these age appropriate. Here below is the list of books we have had on our kids book shelves since they were born. These books would pop up every once and awhile and enter normal family conversations, then disappear into the mix. Allow this to happen. Lean into these harder conversations. Even make them happen at times as events in life unfold (more on this coming). Be ready for harder one’s as they enter the preteen years. I will post more about what to do then in an upcoming video blog and training. Stay tuned!
So here is a great starter list for your kids bookshelves – FYI – click on these links to buy and this actually help HealingLives, LLC. Let’s get these amazing resources into the hands of our children.
