Living Life On Purpose

Raising Peaceful Children...an opportunity for EVERY Person!



About 10 years ago I met a man who had been inspired to create numerous products all centered around PEACE.  At that time, while his business was somewhat successful, it was not thriving. He felt that perhaps the time was past for his products. I wonder if he is still in the business today? I hope so!  The more people and businesses out there promoting PEACE, the greater the focus will be...and the greater amount of GOOD that will be done! 

sign for Teaching Peace     
For me, I think this is the most important work we can do in the world -  raising children who are at peace with themselves, at peace with their parents, at peace with their friends and siblings and ultimately at peace with the world. And in the broadest sense this is an opportunity for each and
every person...doctors, teachers, sales people, ministers, lawyers, everyone and anyone who plays a role in the life of the child!


A saying I put in my eBook, The ART of Communicating with Infants and Very Young Children relates to this. It reads:

Every interaction with a child makes a difference...
makes it a good one! 


Recently, I was with three children in a local store.  We had gone out to lunch and were wandering through the toy department.  All of a sudden a store sales person walks by and makes a "gun" out of his hand and points it directly into the face of the little boy, Nathan, whom I was with.  The gun he made with his hand, was just inches away from Nathan's face.  The child was about 10 feet from me at the time. Nathan, immediately goes out of the aisle to follow the man around the corner and shoots back at him.  I didn't see what followed from where I was, however, Nathan, returns to me after the incident.  I immediately responded that that was not a very nice thing for that man to do!  Nathan says I put up my shield so he didn't get me.

As I put this happening into words, I'm realizing just how inappropriate that sales person was, even though he probably was just wanting to engage with the child in a playful manner.   As a result I will follow up by calling the store manager and hopefully he/she will do a training on appropriate behavior for employees.   Further more, I do believe that my talking to the manager is an example of how Raising Peaceful Children is the work of all of us!! 



Mom and child connecting


D...A...L...I...Y  we have numerous opportunities to make a difference in the life of a child; a difference that can be either positive or negative. 









JOURNALING FOR PEACE:

One way to check your progress in bringing peace to those around you is to keep a journal.  Each day think about what has happened and write down three things that you did to create more peace, love and joy in your world.  The examples do not need to be major accomplishments, in fact most won't be.  They can be a simple as listening to a child sing, or read or playing a game with your little one.  As you journal, I invite you to focus on the positive.  What one focuses on expands. You can focus on what you are doing "right" in creating a peaceful environment or you can get caught up in thinking more about what you didn't do perfectly.  Do remember, what you focus on expands!  Make your choice wisely!
