Well, everything is usually started with parents. Therefore, whatever children do, the response of parents are very crucial.
- When your children are naughty or tempting, just try to understand what they have in their mind and their motive so the feeling of compassion will go over all what they have done that hurt you.

Anytime you think and you see them, you will think about their needs and condition as well. Your care to them will make them happy. When they are happy, you will feel happy as well. In some condition, children don’t understand that you are care about them. Just be patient. As
In some condition, children don’t understand that you are care about them. Just be patient. As long as you show sincerity, they will feel about your care about them.
Related with the feeling and action of acceptance, you need to show gratefulness to have your children.
