Kids long for their parents to affirm their value and worth.
Meeting your child's need for affirmation doesn't have to be difficult or even time-consuming. One simple way is to give "The Blessing." The blessing isn't another parenting tip or formula--it's a powerful, yet simple, biblical concept that can strengthen all of your relationships.
But what exactly does it mean to give a blessing? The blessing as described in Scripture always included five elements:
- Meaningful and appropriate touch
- A spoken message
- Attaching high value to the one being blessed
- Picturing a special future for him or her
- An active commitment to fulfill the blessing
