We all want our kids to be healthy, happy and successful.
But what is the best way to promote health and wellness for our children?
The Importance of Good Parenting
Did you realize that good parenting is as important to your child’s physical and emotional health as diet and exercise? I was reading where researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine did a study on over 1300 students over a period of 30 years. When concluding the most prominent contributor to mental illness, hypertension, malignant tumors, heart disease and suicide, the number one cause of all these things was a lack of closeness to their parents—particularly their fathers.
So, there’s something very therapeutic, emotionally and physically, in cultivating a healthy relationship with our kids. And from my experience, both emotional and physical health begins with a healthy spiritual relationship with our heavenly Father.
