Earning Your Children's Trust

One of the most important things I have is my children's trust.  They know they can talk to me about anything.   Here are a few things I worked hard at to earn their trust:

*I did not speak negatively about my children to others.
*I would not ever never no-matter-what share secrets they told me.
*I gave them impartial advice, usually from the standpoint of the other person.
*I give them my full attention, and what concerns them is very important to me and they know it.

Make sure you earn your children's trust.   It is the best bridge you can build to their hearts!

Challenge:  Make sure you take time to earn your children's trust every day!  You could become the best counselor and friend they have!
