4 things parents give to their children

Raising a child isn't something that should be taken lightly. It's about far more than just getting the child to adulthood.

Parents pass a lot of important traits to their kids. Four of the main things parents give them are:

1. Confidence.

Children may struggle with confidence if they don't have the support of their parents and don't think their parents are, in turn, confident in them. Trusting a child and expressing this confidence goes a long way.

2. Love.

When children know their parents love them, it gives them strength. They feel accepted and wanted. They're joyful. They learn how to love others in the same way.

3. Counsel.

Kids are learning how to navigate the world. They look to their parents for cues and assistance. They trust that their parents can help them along and show them things so they don't need to learn everything "the hard way."

4. Time.

This isn't a trait that is passed, per se, but it's one of the most important things parents can give to their kids. Yes, it can be hard. Life is busy. But spending time with the child is better than giving him or her gifts, money or an easy up-bringing.

You're going through a divorce. Remember, this is just the end of the marriage. It's the end of the relationship with your spouse. It's not the end of your time as a parent.

While you're working on the child custody plan, be sure that you think about all of the things you can give your children. Understand how the plan can reflect these things and focus on your child's best interests.
