As teachers of our next generation we have an obligation to protect guide and teach our children diligently. Our children are our most valuable possessions and we must treat them with respect. Allow me to ask you this, how would you like someone to talk to you? I would venture to say you would rather someone speak to you in a calm peaceful tone of voice rather than yelling or putting you down. This is how we must think of our little ones, they are people too. Now let me make this clear, I know raising a child is no easy job. Each age has its ups and downs but keep this in mind… Everything a child knows has been taught to them from somewhere, knowing this will help you. But back to what I was saying, it’s not fair to a child when their parent or parents are not considerate of their needs first and wants too. Children need to know they can trust us, how may I ask, is this possible if we are lying to them, treating them with disrespect and not being considerate of them, then on top of that, expecting something different in return. This is a big problem in our world. It’s selfishness and unacceptable! If we as parents would just STOP and think first about our children as people deserving of respect and honor our world would not be as bad as it is today. It makes me so sad when I see parents disrespecting and putting down their children, but I realize that, that’s how they were treated and this is a shame. We need help, we need guidance! It is time for our children to know they are worthy of respect and that they are dear to us. Its time for us to teach our children true respect for EVERYONE! And this is taught through our example. We love our children so we need to do what it takes to help them succeed.
