For Our Children Sake

Last Update: February 10, 2022


Hello, esteemed WA Community! I'm back again after a forced retreat. It's well!

Today, I want to encourage us the parents, and grandparents, with these words of wisdom, I came across it today, and I thought it will be useful and instructive to every parent/grandparents, and all the expected parents. If you can remember some of my sayings, we "never stop learning., because we're all students of life. Therefore, I share this with all due respect to everyone's status. Enjoy it!

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 fear, they learn to be apprehensive.

If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.

If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.

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 patience.

If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.

If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.

If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves

If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.

If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.

If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.

If children live with fairness, they learn justice.

If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.

If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those around them.

If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.

This is written by Dorothy Law Nolte.

As you can see, our responsibility as parents/grandparents is enormous. We owe it to our children and grandchildren, to provide them with a nurturing environment to develop their sense of personal worth and thereby build their hope and dreams for a wonderful future. That is our task! That's it for this week. Hope to get your reactions as always.

Have a blessed Feb!

This is very beautiful, for once we recognize that children are the future we must endeavour to nurture them mentally, physically, educationally and spiritually, recognizing what we put in that's what will come out.

As parents, we should be great role models to our children and grand children. What we do as fathers and mothers is what gets the attention of our children; not what we say. If you tell your child, smoking is bad and the first thing you do when you get back from work is light a cigarette. Do you think the child believes you when he sees you enjoying your smoke after work every day? I very much doubt it.
As parents, we should walk the talk, not just talk the talk!

Children observe and do what they see adults do.
