A cat allows two children to pet him/her

Is the concept of blessing your child, scary?

I can’t do that. My child will think I’m crazy.

What if my child blows off my words?

What if I say the wrong thing?

How about if you think of a blessing as praying for someone? That’s essentially what a blessing is, a personal prayer said out loud that gives your child a sense of being loved and accepted. Try this blessing: Say your child’s name and…

God has made you perfect just the way you are.

Think about what hearing those words will mean to your child!
I guess the cat is out of the bag on this one. (grin)
