1. I choose to allow myself the freedom to make mistakes (without beating myself up) so my kids can also have that freedom. 2. I choose to communicate to each child their specific value in my life – to let them know they are treasured. 3. I choose to listen and speak with my children with respect – putting down the phone, looking up from the computer, stopping for a moment to give them my full attention. 4. I choose to keep the vision in the forefront of my mind each day – the vision of godly, mature, grace-filled adults who will impact the world for Christ some day.
