I apologize for keeping this so long but before we find out what is ready for today let’s go back briefly.
Previously on Right Time Series(RTS): TEACH THEM TO ALWAYS BE THANKFUL FOR EVERYTHING. EVEN GOD ENCOURAGES US TO DO SO. STARTING EARLY TO OBEY THIS WORD WILL BOOST THE JOY IN THEIR HEARTS AND BE THE CUSHION TO FALL ON WHEN DISAPPOINTMENTS COME. I KNOW YOU LOVE THEM SO TEACH THEM TO BE GRATEFUL FOR THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UGLY.
Now gently read this:
It’s a long list there right but it says in short almost every single thing I want to say to you.. it’s not for kids only but you the adult too. Do not forget they learn more from what they see. I may not have been able to touch those big things but remember that everything big has its smaller components. So teach yourself and act it and in turn your baby will learn and own these little components that make him/her one big adorable person. “Wont you be proud of that”? Save yourself the shame that comes when a child does something they see you do at home in public by practicing self-control. Kids will always act as kids but hey, they grow up! I challenge you today to pick out the ones your kids or the kid in your care hasn’t learnt yet and start teaching them by doing it yourself. Do not focus your entire energy on one part of their lives that you feel is important. Every little thing is important, so shine the light on it.
I am not trying to say you should not train an academically sound child but please do not get carried away trying to make your child a genius academically, leaving other parts of their lives to neglect and self discovery. We even put so much pressure on these little ones in the name of training them to be the best or we get lost in their academic achievements and fail to help them build other areas of their lives.
While doing this don’t forget to build yourself too for them. Your love for them should come from loving yourself.. Take time to develop the qualities and characters you want to see in our world today by owning and practicing them first and then share with your babies..As they grow they’d share and the circle goes on and on till good takes over.
I never said let your children suffer. All I mean is this: As an older person, you have been where they are, made some mistakes and grown to be better and stronger. Don’t try to give them more than you had, but equip them to be more than you are thus giving them the ability to gain for themselves more than you had. Like I said before be realistic enough to train your kids for the times you will not be available to meet that need or even get them what they want. Be realistic enough to let them use positively their strength and talents to get to be better. Teach them to know how to get it and how to survive when it cannot be gotten.
It’s possible if we believe and work for it. I am so happy to wrap up my first series even though the posts took a while to follow one another but I hope reading this has added one thing to your life. We crave for better and instead of sitting to worry about our future and that of our kids we can start to put in them the change we need. They are our future and a massive contribution to that change. Start now to do it right and someday we will overcome. I still love you and this is not my last! Visit for more!
