Some Amazon reviewers talked about reading this book to the CHILDREN!!! HUGE MISTAKE!!!
********This book is for DADS to read!!!********
In a conversational narrative Charlie Shed gently describes what fatherly LOVE is. = A DELIGHT TO READ!!!
How important LOVE is.
And HOW to communicate that LOVE to each child. Lots of anecdotes to illustrate each point.
A big part of it seems to be "lead by example." Teach your kids "love" by LOVING your wife. Let them see you hugging and kissing and giving each other special little looks. Gentle nudges. Tiny acts of kindness. Calling each other
"G rated" 'pet names.' Complementing each other about everyday things. =If the stew is good, SAY SO!!! =Love your wife first, but show love to each child just as well.
Children will "FEEL BETTER ABOUT ME" as they watch Mom and Dad hopelessly, permanently in love
There is so much in this little book. Entertaining enough to read from cover to cover. But go back and read a chapter a day. Highlight phrases. Make notes in the margins. Leave pointers on things YOU need to work on.
>>>Disclaimer:<<< I attend the "Charlie Shedd Institute" in 1965. Read "Letters to Karen" when it came out in 1965. (Read an excerpt in a Family Circle magazine in the lobby of my doctors’ office.) Whenever I learn couples are getting married I immediately give them "Letters to Karen" and "Letters to Phillip." Keep copies in the closet so they will be
handy. (These books sell out often...)
I have spent the last 39 years in my first/only loving marriage. We have raised 2 loving, responsible children to adulthood. I am told we will be a "Grandma and Grumps" in May!!! I love life because my Lord loves me. Because my wife loves me. Because she sees the Lord's love reflect off me, …warts and all! Because our children love us. And we love them…
