James L. Casale, Ph.D.
One of my visitors suggested this topic. She believes, as I do, that extra household time- even for working parents-presents itself during holiday weekends as well as prolonged seasonal events that include Thanksgiving as well as Christmas. As a result, I couldn’t assist believing about what my other half as well as I would do in a different way if we understood then-in the 60s as well as 70s- versus what we understand now.
First things First
First of all, our goal of increasing as well as mentor our kids to be kind, compassionate, considerate, selfless, respectful, accountable as well as life-long learners would have been written as a household objective statement as well as published in a conspicuous location in our home. It would guide our actions as a family. I feel comfortable stating that in “those days “we understood bit however tried difficult to raise our two children, James as well as Karen, in an atmosphere that emphasized personal as well as academic growth. At that time, I had not yet formulated Dr. Casale’s very first Commandment of Parenting:
“Thou shalt have a household objective statement that is published in a conspicuous location as well as referred to often.”
(For more info on household objective statements, checked out chapters one as well as two in Dr. Casale’s book.)
