There is no single effort more radical in its potential for saving the world than a transformation of the way we raise our children. ~ Marianne Williamson ~
Raising children is not easy, if you’re doing a good job. They need limits. They have no choice but to go along with plans that are not always their own or to their liking. They need to know the consequences of their actions, and that they will be held accountable. In life as an adult, things will not always go their way. They need to know there are rules. Rewards for doing well should be given, but not for just showing up. We must teach them by our good example. They need to know how much we care.
Young people who can’t handle loss or disappointment today, were probably poorly raised children yesterday. The past two decades have shown us the new (incorrect) way to raise a generation of children. They cannot emotionally deal with life when their political candidate did not win the election. Their emotional frustration is such a terrible burden that their only relief is to riot and destroy public and private property. They have been encouraged to equate abusive words with physical violence. An important thing they lack is boundaries. Society has created a generation of snowflakes who all expect to get a trophy for just showing up.
Children are our future, we at www.secretserendipity.com will help them lead the way.
