I have been told that your children tend to grow up fast, and you have to make the best of it. The critical period for molding your child occurs before the age 7. There are so many things you can do and say to your child. It is more than just them knowing the basics. Character development needs to start early in life.
I am responsible for my child’s growth, not just physically, but mentally as well. I know that I have to be what I teach my child. I have to portray those characteristics that will help him be the fine young man I know he can be. I have to make sure that I plan time to communicate with him. I want my child to live life fearlessly, honestly, passionately, respectfully. I started thinking about some of the things I want to teach my child. Here are three of life’s lessons I plan on teaching.
1. Be grateful for what you have, and you will be blessed with more. Take care of your belongings. No matter how long or how short you have them, they are in your hands.
2. Take care of yourself and do not expect others to do for you. Rest and relax.
3. Live a life with limited excuses. You have the power to be who you want.
