Children Learn What They Live

If children live with criticism,
They learn to condemn.
If children live with hostility,
They learn to fight.
If children live with ridicule,
They learn to be shy.
If children live with shame,
They learn to feel guilty.
If children live with encouragement,
They learn confidence.
If children live with tolerance,
They learn to be patient.
If children live with praise,
They learn to appreciate.
If children live with acceptance,
They learn to love.
If children live with approval,
They learn to like themselves.
If children live with honesty,
They learn truthfulness.
If children live with security,
They learn to have faith in themselves and others.
If children live with friendliness,
They learn the world is a nice place in which to live.

by: Tele flora

Every year, children all over the country want to give their fathers’ that perfect gift. Everyone knows the old joke of giving him a tie or underwear or even socks, so much so that those jokes have worn out their welcome. A Father’s Day card just doesn’t seem like enough, but many times finding a great gift he doesn’t already have is hard. That’s where trying to find a truly unique Father’s Day gift, while challenging, can pay off as being the perfect gift.

Truth be told, finding a totally unique gift isn’t as hard as you’d think. While flowers may not seem like a gift your father would appreciate, if you give a great Father’s Day flower arrangement in a vase that appeals to his interests, like baseball or fire trucks, you’ve discovered a totally cool gift that he’ll get a kick out of. Not only will he then appreciate the flowers, but every time that vase is used, he’ll remember you again and again for the gift.

Another great Father’s Day gift is a gift basket for dad. We’re talking about a gift basket filled with fresh fruit to start with. If your father likes munchies to enjoy while watching the game, there are baskets that have bags of chips, crackers, cheese and even some candy. If dad happens to enjoy healthier snacks, try one with sunflower seeds, nuts, and other low calorie options. For the father who’s a dyed in the wool choc-a-holic, send a basket filled with fine chocolates. If your father who enjoys the finer things, gift a basket full of fruit, cheese, crackers and even nuts and olives.

With these entirely great Father’s Day gifts, some father’s truly do appreciate a nice bouquet.There are lots of very nice bouquets and arrangements available that look truly spectacular. Whether he’s a fan of rock gardens, Zen-type arrangements or even a simple arrangement, there are lots of awesome choices available.

All it takes is a few minutes of your time to access the internet, find an online networked florist and half your job is complete. After that, find a great gift basket for dad, or an awesome floral arrangement he’ll enjoy and fill out the gift card and recipient address. Your order will be taken care of by the closest florist in the network and promptly delivered, even the same day if the florist has enough advance notice. After all these years of looking, you can actually find that perfect gift for dad on Father’s Day. He’ll love it and you’ll feel great knowing you hit a home run.
