If kids feel safe I think they grow up knowing they can do whatever they want. If they don’t then they don’t. Safe means more than just free of physical harm. It also means that they feel safe in their knowledge that their parents respect and care for each other. The best case scenario, of course, is that the parents are still together. But even if they aren’t, I think children are still buoyed up when their parents show respect for each other. And parents who are still married but show no respect toward one another are not doing their children any favors. Respecting another is such a simple but hard task sometimes. It takes work! But I love this quote and its reminder that it will not only strengthen your marriage but also your children.
Have a fabulous Sunday, friends!
