When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, everything is lost… By – Billy Graham
As a parent, if we keep these lines in our mind then we are definitely contributing something to our society. We have the responsibility to give good citizens to our nation.
Nowadays all newspapers are full of crimes and inexcusable human act.
I believe; people who are committing such crimes are mentally ill. And to some extents their parents are equally responsible for raising such kind of mentally ill people.
How can we raise our kids to a better human being?
Do you think, teaching them ABC will help? No; I don’t agree, even if you don’t teach, they will learn it at later stage.
Main thing which they should learn is values.
Building a character is tough, and keeping a good character at all time is toughest.
Values are required to maintain a good character. And values cannot be taught, but it is caught from the actions. Kids follow their elders. So it’s our responsibility to set the correct examples for them.
I remember a short story about character, which my mother narrated to me during my childhood days. I would like to share that story with you all in my next post.
