Open Communication

The Principle of Open Communication: Open Communication Opens Your Child’s Heart
But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger... - James 1:19
Chapter Highlights
The more you communicate, the more you will understand. The more you understand, the greater will be your influence.

  • Open communication opens your child’s heart. The key to open communication is listening.
  • Listen to verbal cues and watch also for non-verbal cues to understand the emotions and heart of your child.
  • Be available. Give your children your full attention when they are talking to you.
  • Interact. Share stories from your own experience and ask your kids how you can pray for them.
  • Do not react. Ask open ended questions, and seek first to understand before you want to be understood.

Modeling

The Principle of Modeling: CHILDREN COPY US
Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ. - 1 Corinthians 11:1
Chapter Highlights
The purpose of Modeling is to impact the heart. Our children’s behavior is external, it is the fruit. The heart is internal, it is the root. Only by influencing the heart will we see lasting change take place.

  • Children copy us whether we like it or not. We must model what we want our children to be, because they will become what we are.
  • Values are more caught than taught. Who we are and what we do are far more effective in influencing our children than wat we say.
  • Modeling is not about perfection but authenticity. Being authentic means, you model humility by apologizing and asking for forgiveness when you make mistakes.
  • Children develop spiritual apathy when they live with hypocritical parents. Apply the “One-Man Principle.” Who you are outside your home should be consistent with who you are inside your home.
  • We are to model Christlike character to our children. They should see Christ in the way we respond and interact with one another. Parents should model their God-given role in the family.
