This week we'll discuss 3 things every child needs from their parents.
I. Every child needs Direction.
I. Every child needs Direction.
A. Establish clear expectations and responses.
B. Shower them with loving, supportive encouragement.

II. Every child needs Attention.
II. Every child needs Attention.
Two great temptations every parent fights are:
A. Absenteeism, which is a subtle form of abuse.
B. Selfishness, which minimizes the needs of those depending on them.
III. Every child needs Affection.
This involves how we:
A. Talk with and to them.
III. Every child needs Affection.
This involves how we:
A. Talk with and to them.
B. Interact with them.
Why getting these things is so important.
1. Sets the tone for how to treat others.
2. Helps them develop proper self-worth.
3. Fills their God-given needs from a loving, godly stream.
