My mother often said, "You can catch more flies with a spoonful of honey than with a cupful of vinegar." Let's build character by finding out how this applies to parenting.

Vinegar or honey, what do kids really want? "Toys, candy and their own way," answer millions of parents. Then why do too many toys, too much candy, and constantly giving into kids create sour little monsters? Aren't these the ingredients for honey?

Consider the three most delicious ingredients for raising kids with character:

Attention

Affection

These powerful ingredients will absolutely bond your kids to you. Great ways to stir this recipe into your everyday life are listed below:

1. Your children thirst for your positive attention:
Read stories with your kids.

2. Your children thrive with your appreciation:
Thank yous
Smiles
Specific praise for specifc deeds

3. Your children crave your affection:

Parents, it's your attention, your appreciation, and your affection that your children really want. This recipe has the power to create an unbreakable bond between you and your children.
