It is important that we are focusing on raising loving and compassionate children.
If you have a 2 year old boy, ask yourself, what kind of 8 year old am I raising right now, how will this boy behave in the school yard?
If you have an 8 year old, ask yourself, what kids of 15 year old am I raising right now, how will this boy treat his girlfriend?
If you have a 15 year old, ask yourself, what kind of man, husband, father am I raising right now, how will he treat his partner and children?
We get so focused on managing the day to day that we forget the big picture. Often, we think of big picture only in terms of their education and potential career or earning potential.
If we raise our children with the intention of helping to create compassionate and loving adults, we need to be teaching, modeling, and helping them experience love and compassionate right now.
