Chapter 3.....To Love their Children...VERY important!

This takes a whole lot more time than I thought going chapter by chapter...were only on Chapter 3.....
Todays is probably the most important of all, without this, none else matters ....PLEASE READ ON!!
Do we really know How To Love?
Titus 2:4-5:"That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to LOVE their children...."

  Let the children lead them....
  The most important thing a mother will dofor her children is to create an atmosphere of peace and how?... by deeply loving their Daddy and being satisfied with life.
   Several years ago, my husband did a Family Life Seminar for homeschooling families at a large, very conservative Church. The people were given age appropropriate questionnaires before we got there. Each Homeschool child(from every child who could write, up to single adults still living at home) was asked 2 questions:
   1.   Is your home happy?
   2.   What one thing would you like to see chang in your home that would make you a happier
   We were not expecting profound answers. We thought the children would say that they wanted name-brand clothes, or more freedom, or maybe more access to video games. We hoped we would get a few serious answers, like some kids saying they wanted to spend more time with their parents or they wanted to be trusted. Their responses shocked and saddened us.
   Out of 75 responses, only 2 or 3 children considered their home happy. Nearly all 75 answers of the second question were basically the same. 10 year olds (who could barely spell) to single colleg -age adults had the same hopes and anguishes. They all said something to the effect of, "I wish Mama and Daddy would love  each other", and the younger the writers wrote their answers like these, "Our home would be happierif Mama and Daddy would not fight","I would make my Mama and Daddy like each other,""We would have a happy home if Mama would not talk bad about Daddy," and "I wish Mama would not talk back and make Daddy get mad and yell."   OOOPS!!!
   The older ones wrote along these lines, "Our house would be a more peaceful place if Mom did not walk around with this frozen bitternes,"" I feel like we live in a war zone."
 Let these 75 Homeschooled children/young adults lead you to this important truth:

Ladies...Friends...Loved Ones...Sisters.. DO YOU???

Until later...
Love to all who read...
