Addressing Key Areas
In order for a young person to grow into a stable and successful adult, there are several key areas that parents can focus on with regard to the parent-child relationship. These areas include the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of their child. Addressing these areas can be accomplished in a myriad of ways ranging from imparting an important life lesson, tangibly expressing one's faith, or simply being silly and fun together.
Addressing all of these areas will likely take some conscious thought, however it doesn't necessarily require a massive shift in attention away from a parent's other adult responsibilities, as oftentimes child-rearing can be incorporated into a parent's daily responsibilities. In fact, making simple changes in the expression of love for one's child is often all it takes to make a huge impact in a parent-child relationship.
