Rabbi Chaim Walder, Ahuva Raanan
Sometimes Mommy worries,
and sometimes Mommy is emotional,
Sometimes Mommy feels sad,
and sometimes Mommy feels satisfied.
When Avi doesn’t listen to her she feels angry,
and when he calms Tammy she feels happy.
When something hurts Avi Mommy is sympathetic,
when Avi fights with Tammy Mommy may feel disappointed
but Mommy always, always loves.
The most significant influence on the development of a child is his relationship with his parents. The stronger the relationship, the more likely it is that the lessons that the parents impart to the child will be accepted.
A strong relationship between two people requires communication. This includes awareness, expression and perception of one another’s feelings. When a parent conveys a feeling that is not expressed sufficiently, or when a child does not perceive a feeling correctly, the wrong message may be received. Worry can translate into anger, anger can seem to be rejection, indecision may appear as weakness, emotion as sadness, etc.
Stories Straight from Mommy’s Heart opens a window into the hearts of mothers (as well as fathers). These stories will help parents teach their children the language of feelings, resulting in clearer expression, sharper perception, and enhanced communication.
