Love Should Be the Silver Thread – JC Ryle

I do not mean that you are to spoil your child, but I do mean that you should let him see that you love him.

Love should be the silver thread that runs through all your conduct. Kindness, gentleness, long-suffering, forbearance, patience, sympathy, a willingness to enter into childish troubles, a readiness to take part in childish joys, — these are the cords by which a child may be led most easily, — these are the clues you must follow if you would find the way to his heart.

Taken from the book The Duties of Parents by JC Ryle 1816-1900
