There is no better opportunity for any adult to impact this world, than to develop strong Christian relationships with and through their children.

A survey was taken among parents. The point was to record the negative and positive statements they made to their children in the course of a day. The result was that for every single positive statement made, parents also averaged 10 negative ones. (3)

In a Florida city, teachers were found to be negative in their communication 75% of the time. This in light of the knowledge that it takes 4 positive statements to overcome the effect of one negative statement.

--Institute of Family Relations, (As reprinted in Homemade, September, 1991)
