Emotional Needs of children and in a family:

Posted: July 10, 2015 in Emotional Healing, Family/ kids and environments

Children and young people are the treasures of this generation and the next generations, the way we treat them will determine the next generations.

We need to be careful not to harden the hearts of our children and young people, without using harsh words and harsh voice, speaking to them with all gentleness and kindness.

Unconditional Love – To feel loved by parents in good times and bad times, in any condition, which means un-condition. The word of God said in Pro 15:17 – “Better a meal of vegetables where there is love than a fattened calf with hatred”. Therefore, the most important thing in a family is the environment of Love.

Affection – A healthy touch can work into the deep emotion and heart, hugging, tap on the shoulders. Mark 9:36-37b – “Taking a child, Jesus set him before them, and TAKING HIM IN HIS ARMS, He said to them, “Whoever receives one of these little children in My name receives Me…..”

Support and provision, feelings of belonging, to feel accepted in the home, to feel secure in the home, appreciations, encouragement – Encouragement build up, strengthen, also provide security and healthy confident.

Approval and Affirmation – Eg: Mark 1:11 – “You are my beloved son, whom I love…”, “This is my dear daughter”.
Attention – Being interested in what they are interested, listening to their hurts, joy, happiness and sadness. When there is an unmet need of attention, feelings of unloved can be born.

Respect – Getting less respect can make people feel unimportant, insignificant, low self image, worthless and unloved. Respect will make them feel loved. The most important thing in a family is the environment of Love.

While you are too busy at work, ministry, business, or other works, be careful that you don’t lost your child along the way. Your children need your attentions, affections, they want to hear your voice, they need your presence, they need you.

How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, They would outnumber the grains of sand— (Psalm 139:17-18)
