It is easy to criticize.  It is very simple to find fault with something someone else is doing.  This is especially true with our loved ones.  Children seem to take the brunt of this criticism.  How often have you seen parents admonishing their children over the child’s failure to do simple tasks, or to do something a certain way?  I see it everywhere.  I suppose some parents think that it is vogue to tear down the self esteem of a child in public.  It somehow makes the parent a better, more involved adult.  It’s never right to berate a child or anyone esle, in public or private.  Yet it happens everyday, everywhere.


Instead of looking at the faults, what you perceive as the negatives in a child, spouse or friend, look at the positives that person or child brings to your life.  Look at the joy and happiness they put in your heart.  When you look at it that way, and at the same time try to imagine your life without them, then those little things they need work on really don’t seem to matter that much.  Instead of looking for them to do something wrong, catch them doing something right!  Let them know how much you appreciate them and what they bring to your life. 

By doing so, you will make a tremendous difference in their lives as well.
