The earlier our kids develop a vocabulary of kind words the better.
Engaging those habits with consistent correction and guidance can be tiring.
It can take thought and energy that can wear parents out.
However, it is important to teach children to always submit to or challenge authority with grace and respect. Clearly the words we choose affect those they are directed towards.

It is not rare to see a younger guy and an older woman date and have a very intense sexual and romantic relationship, which defies the traditional “older man, younger woman” set-up that we are used to seeing. First, the fact that such a dating situation is still somewhat taboo makes is all the more enticing and exciting.
Many younger guys are driven to women who are 10 years older than they are or more, as these women are often more confident and more sexually driven and passionate than the younger women.
When they develop a habit of taking care of their things, add a chore pertaining to a common area.
Encourage and reward their work only when it deserves it.
These younger guys are both curious and excited about dating a woman who, is not ashamed of what she wants sexually, unlike the younger girls of his own age who are often confused about just about everything, including their romantic and sexual desires.
