Yesterday I went to our local grocery store.I often go to their deli counter, and I understand that it can get a little confused for the workers.So normally none of them ever take the time to smile or seem overly friendly.But yesterday it was completely different.I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted with a very welcoming smile by the young man behind the counter.He never sighed heavily or slumped back and forth like he didn't want to be there.He was all by himself and quite a long line.But not once did he act concerned about it.He just did his job efficiently and acted very kind the entire time.
I was so impressed that I approached the manager.I explained to her that I often visit the deli counter and I have never been greeted with such kindness.She agreed with me that he was a wonderful person and she thanked me for sharing my feelings with her.
As I was walking away,I could hear her approaching the young man with,“I j ust got a wonderful compliment (praise) about you.”I couldn't hear everything she was saying,but I knew that she did thank him.I could't help but smile!
Later I had to pass by the deli counter to get onions.There was no one there, except the diligent young man.He didn't say anything,and he just smiled at me.I realized that I hadn't done a huge deed that day,but that small deed made a small difference to someone.I love seeing people smile.I just received my smile cards and I wish I had one with me that day. Maybe_I_will_drop_one_off_at_the_deli_a_different_day! It's amazing how good I felt after that.
So,friends,the next time you are in a grocery store,retail store,restaurant, or anywhere that someone is working hard,letting them know in some way can mean so much.I hope you get a smile out of it like I did!

My daughter does not get the fact that we are a one-income family,and every time she wants something we have to tell her that we cannot afford it.What is a good way to get her to understand that money is very tight right now,without upsetting her?
Thanks for writing to me.These are tough times.Fortunately one of you does have a job and the necessities for your family are being met.I don't know how old your daughter is,but clearly she doesn't like hearing that she can't get whatever she
wants,and so she gets upset.This is something you need to handle whether you have the money to pay for what she wants or not.
It's a part of parenting that challenges all of us,but it's a critical part of the good parenting practice.
If you feel bad or guilty when you can't buy her something she wants,they_all_do, and it doesn't help the matter.You will have a much better result if you can find a way to present the reality of your family life to your daughter faithfully.Think of it as a zone you need to find where you report the information without much emotion.If you notice that the matter of money can send a bag of emotions through you that have nothing to do with your daughter or the desired item of the moment, try and separate from your feelings about it and let your daughter see a strong grounded mother putting boundaries where they have to go for now.
You could also consider having a family meeting about how things are going and ask her to do her part,which could involve showing restraint (克制) by not asking for things.Try and remind yourself and your daughter about the good fortune of having right now,what you do have and many others don't.This is something that will implement (使生效) the kind of parenting that has great results.Your one income is pushing you to be a better parent to your daughter,and in the end she will be grateful.

Some people make you feel comfortable when they are around.You spend an hour with them and feel as if you have known them half your life.These people have something in common.And once we know what it is,we can try to do it ourselves.
How is it done?Here are several skills that good talkers have.If you follow the skills,they'll help you put people at their ease,and make friends with them quickly.
First of all,good talkers ask questions.Almost anyone,no matter how shy he is,will answer a question.One well-known businesswoman says,“At business lunches, I always ask people what they did that morning.It's a common question,but it will get things going.” From there you can move on to other matters-sometimes to really personal questions.And how he answers will let you know how far you can go.
Second,once good talkers have asked questions,they listen to the answers.This point seems clear,but it isn't.Your questions should have a point and help to tell what sort of person you are talking to.And to find out,you really have to listen carefully and attentively.
Real listening at least means some things.First it means not changing the subject of conversation.If someone sticks to one topic,you can take it as a fact that he's really interested in it.Real listening also means not just listening to words,but to tones of voice.If the voice sounds dull,then,it's time for you to change the subject.
Finally,good talkers know well how to deal with the occasion of parting.If you're saying goodbye,you may give him a firm handshake and say,“I've really enjoyed meeting you.”If you want to see that person again,don't keep it a secret.Let people know what you feel,and they may walk away feeling as if they've known you half their life.
