“And so only a question of the time we have, and the lives that our children need, as they can only keep growing up with what they know through what we teach and what they see”.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the power we hold in our hands. As parents.
If we give our children what they need physically and spiritually, they will hold the tools to broaden their futures, stand up for change, live to their fullest potential.
If I teach my children now to eat healthy foods, perhaps they will have healthier lives.
If I teach my children about respect and diversity, perhaps they will bridge the gap for tolerance.
If I teach my children to love the earth, perhaps they can continue to try to save it.
If I teach my children to love themselves, perhaps they will be more confident than I am.
Isn’t that what every parent wants, to see their children grow, prosper and live better lives than they had?
Sometimes the battles seem too big, the goals too far out of reach. Sometimes you just need a reminder that you can affect change, simple change at home.
