GOAL SLOGAN: I CONSTRUCT RELATIONS BASED ON AFFECTION, WITH FAMILY AND PARTNERS
SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT.
The questions below are designed to help you think about how you can help from home with the skills development programme your child is taking part in.
- Do you talk to your children about the meaning of love and their vision of having a family?
- Do you help them to be aware of the responsibilities involved in their romantic relationships, and show them that they are not to be taken lightly?
- Do we know about their feelings, and do we know if they fall in love quickly?
- Do you know about their friendships, as well as those with girls? Do you know what to do about those friendships that seem inappropriate?
HOW CAN WE HELP?
The suggestions below show when personal parental involvement is necessary. The aim of the subjects proposed is to demonstrate where you might be able to support your child and help him to work on developing this month’s skill.
- By helping the children, first of all through example, by dealing with things diplomatically and tact, as parents. In conversations, stress the beauty of marriage and describe it as a passionate, exciting adventure that is worth dedicating, effort imagination and enthusiasm to.
- With respect to the family, the subjects of feelings and love must be able to be talked about in a natural manner. As your children continue to make friends and meet their future partners, it is a good idea to talk about this a lot and explain what constitutes true friendship and true love. And show them that romantic relationships and the commitments that these involve are not a game and that it is worthwhile taking care and taking things seriously. This doesn’t mean long monologues but being on the lookout in case the occasion arises where a brief comment is needed to establish criteria.
- Let them see the image presented by the media of romantic relationships (cinema, TV, games, song lyrics, ways of having fun, etc.). Assess whether it is worthwhile for parents to select what is seen at home, according to your criteria and that this matter is not left to chance or to the sole criterion of your children.
