=====================================================

Imagine with me for a moment that you have just arrived home from a
party.

“Honey, I’m so hungry, do we have anything good to eat?” you ask
your spouse.

“Hungry!” Spouse exclaims, “How could you possibly be hungry; you
ate tons of food at the party!”

Or, how about this scenario:

“Sweetheart,” you begin as you turn towards your spouse to express
yourself, “I’m really very hot. Would you lower the thermostat
please?”

“Hot!” Spouse practically shouts, “I’ll tell you what hot is- go
outside in the sun, then you’ll feel hot! When you come back
inside, you’ll realize that it’s very comfortable in here.”

{End of imagination exercise.}

Reflecting an emotion- towards a child, spouse, or friend- will make
all the difference in the world in how their self-esteem and
relationship with you will develop.

I can honestly say that if I had to choose one article that is the
most essential for parents to read, it would be this one! Read
