“To educate a person in mind and not morals is to educate a menace to society.”
As parents, it is our responsibility to teach our children values and ideals that will help them become responsible human beings who will be a not only grow up to be responsible adults but also hold respect for others and be an asset to society. However, the truth of the matter is, it doesn’t matter how diligent we are in raising our children and teaching them the values we believe will make them honest, kind and considerate adults, the decision to carry those values with them throughout life is up to them. All you can do is equip them to handle real situations and hope they’re strong enough to face life’s challenges
This week has been an emotional roller coaster, with a Category 5 storm barrelling down on The Bahamas and my daughter being stuck between destinations, it’s really been challenging to stay without going into a panic attack. It’s the unknowing that’s really the killer, it’s not a matter on if the storm will make landfall, it’s all a matter of when!
“I will prepare and someday my chance will come.”
“Is the window of your soul open for fresh air and the sunshine of Truth to come in, or is it closed and shuttered by mental laziness or the emotional congestion we call prejudice? None of us know how many things we have missed through being self-satisfied and cocksure. No one can be considered really intelligent who does not have a readiness to examine new ideas with an open mind.” ~Emmet Fox
