Any of you out there that are parents, listen up.

Take every opportunity to model the behavior that people who love ecahother exhibit IN FRONT OF YOUR CHILDREN. I am not talking about making out in front of them. I am speaking of really showing love to your friends, family and significant other in front of the kids.

Model good communication as well. Clear, calm communication.

I was just speaking to my son on the phone. He wanted $10 for In & Out so he and his girlfriend can go eat. Her mom is dropping them off. He said that they need to spend some time together since they were supposed to have a chance today, but family stuff got in the way. He spends a lot of time with their family as her brother is his best friend.

I told him I wanted IN & OUT too and he said, “well, Annie and I want to spend time with eachother.” He means he wants her to himself. The tone in his voice when he says that to me(often) is so warm. They have a very special relationship for a couple of teens. They have been going out for a year. He still beems over her the way he did the first few weeks. He is IN LOVE…really. She is a sweet and compassionate young woman who makes Julian more himself.

THAT, my friends, is what love is supposed to do.

I am telling you to teach them to really love because by example I somehow lucked out and he knows how.

It makes his mom very happy.
