Loving You

Love

You love your children. You love your husband. Your love your wife. You love your family. You love your friends. You love your job.
You love……. But you have to love yourself. In order to properly love others, you must love yourself first. This post is about Loving you. Learning to love yourself after Domestic Violence.  Help through all the stages beginning with self, and your children.

I am speaking from experience. The Beginning
I was living in an abusive relationship for years. You keep trying to fix the relationship, not realizing that you can’t fix, what’s not your problem. The Problem…Because my ex-husband wasn’t fulfilling the role of man, he started using and abusing alcohol and drugs regularly. When under the influence of alcohol and drugs he became a monster. The Result…The marriage affected me, my children and my immediate family. Thank God for family, friends and agencies that help women and children living with domestic violence.

Now that I am free, I am able to see, think, and meditate on me. I realized when you love yourself, you wouldn’t deal or put up with certain things. When someone really love you:
1. They will not hit, kick or punch you.
2. Their words will not hurt to your core.
3. They would think of you because they do something wrong.
4. They would listen to you.
5. They would respect your feelings.
6. They would build you up.
7. They would not lie to you.
8. They would correct you with Love.

I had to learn how to continue to love and forgive my abusive ex-husband. My next post will be on forgiveness.

Teaching Children Values

Teaching our children the value of money at early age is very beneficial.
The benefits:

1. Promote values and responsibilities.

2. Job skills

3. Saving for college

4. Avoid bad credit

5.  Avoid credit card debt

6.  How not to waste valuable time and money.

7. Consequences that will affect your life for a long time.

Why…Teaching our children values of money shows them that money don’t grow on trees. Children think all they have to do is ask and it shall be given to them.

We as parents have a responsibility to teach our children about the real world. That they can’t have everything.

Hard work and determination is the key to success. When we teach our children about money they learn valuable life lessons about bank operations.

Take your children on a field trip to visit a bank, experience is the best teacher. Your children would enjoy it and see that learning is fun and necessary. Plus you’re promoting family time.

These techniques are priceless.
1. How to Earn money
2. How to Spend money wisely
3. How to Invest money
4. How to Borrow money
5. How to Pay money back
6. How to Save money

And so much more…

You can also teach and show your children what its like when you get into debt with people, credit cards and not paying your bills.

The bottom line is teach your children how to work, save money, plan and prepare. It’s been great sharing another part of me, with you. Please come again.

“Diary of Single Mom”

Diary of Single Mom is web based television series showcasing the up and downs of three single parent mom’s and their families.    I really, really like the subject matter.  Another things that I enjoy about the series, is that, how three different moms hold it together by working together.  The families are living in same building, which they become one big family.  These single moms has different experiences but through it all they work together to help each other grow.  These series are very realistic.  “Diary of Single Mom” created by Robert Townsend.
