In this day and age of being so busy, connecting for couples is not always easy but it's necessary, especially if you have children. Not only is it a must for you the couple but it's also needed for the children. Who knows, maybe they need a break from parents too!
The truth is, they watch everything parents do. When they see you connect they gain the understanding that the marriage relationship is valued. When they see parents connecting it ultimately gives them a sense of safety and security and every child needs security which is essential to their growth and development.
Connecting sends a message that the parents are happy and when they see happy parents they feel happy and content. While we connect they connect and feel a sense of closeness and awareness that mom and dad love each other so they must love me too.
Seeing parents connecting will hopefully encourage them to practice this same discipline in their own marriages one day. It seems that even what we do for ourselves will have lasting ramifications for our children. Let's make the best of it!
