MONDAY, JUNE 19,2006 COMMUNITY THE HAYS DAILY NEWS AS ALnTEftOFENCIOMlEMENT TO YIIR CHILD Part one: "I love you." Make sure your child knows / your love for him is unconditional and not based on what his grades are or how nice he is to you or whether or not he makes captain of the Softball team. Part two: "I praise you." Let your child know you are proud of him, his accomplishments, his unique talents and abilities. Such as, how you treat your siblings, how you help around the house, how you brought your grades up last semester, how well you play the piano, or how you are willing to share with others. Part three: "About our relationship..." Don't criticize or place blame. Acknowledge your own shortcomings and apologize for any wrongs you have done. Share what you wish for your relationship. "I apologize for spending too much time working late or at the golf course. I wish we could spend more time together. Maybe we can plan for Thursday evenings to be our family night." or "I wish we could be more open about our problems. Let's talk one night this week about how we can change that." A letter like this, written positively and honestly, will go right to a child's heart.
