What will your child become

We each individually want the best for our children.  Yet, we know the world will not always have their best interest at heart. It is our responsibility to give them enough guidance, support and encouragement to give them a better chance of “making it.”

One significant piece of this puzzle is teaching our children responsibility.   I am not just referring to cleaning up after themselves.  I mean looking out for others, even complete strangers.   So hoe can this be done.  Pick something that your child has in abundance, like some old toys.  And then start the conversation.  “What kind of toys do you think other kids have?”.  

You want to lead your child down a path so that they first realize that every household is not as fortunate as their own. Once they grasp that concept you simply ask, even they don't suggest it themselves, “do you think some other children would like to have your old toys?”.

Teaching your child not only about being responsibility for themselves but for others will catapult their understanding of this world to a new level of understanding.   With that understanding the world is theirs.

  3. Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.
