A recent survey by TIME for Kids and KidsHealth.org looked at the comments of more than 8,000 children ages 8 to 14 and hundreds of their parents. One of the findings is that 78% of the parents said they are proud of their kids. The interesting, and sad, part of the survey is that only 58% of the kids said they think their parents are proud of them.
Perhaps parents could remember the admonition of Solomon who told us that even in reproving us, the Lord proclaims His love for us. In correcting a child, parents must be sure they assure the children of their love. –--Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell
