FamilyLife Blended®with Ron L. Deal
Connecting to Your Child’s Heart Friday, October 16, 2020
One of my goals…connecting you to your child’s heart. I heard from a dad who had listened to a podcast I was on talking about kids, the challenges of divorce, and blended families and it got him wondering if his daughter could relate. So, he asked her. Sure enough, she did. She didn’t really have words for what she was feeling, and he helped her put words on her experience when they talked about it. The conversation and her dad’s empathy made her feel close to him, not alone. Supported, not isolated. Loved, not forgotten.
