Moms have an important role as nurturer, but moms have needs, too! Authors Elisa Morgan and Carol Kuykendall, the leaders of MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) International, offer a guide for mothers to get the nurturing they need. They outline nine needs identified by members of MOPS, significance, identity, growth, intimacy, instruction, help, recreation, perspective, and hope, and explain how to achieve each one.
Do you know your child's 9 needs? The love you have for your children can give them a foundation for life - provided you show it in the ways they need most. Using a child's language of love, you'll learn how to meet your child's 9 needs for security, play, affirmation, guidance, family, discipline, respect, independence, and hope. Elisa Morgan and Carol Kuykendall are president and vice president of communication ministries for MOPS International Inc, a Denver-based organization dedicated to nurturing mothers of preschoolers.
