CHILDREN: ARE THEY THE PRODUCT OR THE CAUSE?


Elisabeth Louise Vigée-Le Brun
Have you ever heard this being said? “Children must be seen and not heard?” Just the very thought make me sick.  Is it any wonder why the private opinions sown in the mind of the children soon become its public opinion? We should develop the skill to listen to our children. As it is their values that will govern our world, even their manners often times are but the response of their homes.

Nations are born out of the wombs of mothers; for mothers who hold the reigns of children exercise a greater power than the mighty men who rules the world.  Hence mothers are of a special kind to be nurtured and listened to, loved and treasured.

The wise upbringing of the child will show the man, as morning shows the day. Therefore we should bear this in mind that whatever the mind is fed on that is the character it will become, so let us guard from the earliest years the education of our children.

Let us train our children well so that they may do us proud and not become moral and physical weaklings. As we lead the way in right doing they will not only have the practical knowledge of life but they will be able to perform their task adequately.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” Marianne Williamson.
