Raising Peaceful Children: EVERYONE'S OPPORTUNITY


RAISING PEACEFUL CHILDREN:  EVERYONE’S OPPORTUNITY

 

I so enjoy being out in public and happening to observe a beautiful interaction between a child and parent or child and another adult.  It’s so rewarding to see a genuine interaction like this.

During October I was in our local grocery store and observed a group of preschool children in the Produce section. 
One of the main produce workers was telling the children about various fruits & vegetables.  They were able to taste them if they wanted to. The children were asking   questions & he was addressing them in such an age-appropriate manner.  All were having a great time! 



Each child was being honored and given the fruit of his/her choice.  Who knows, one of them might turn out to be a farmer because of this experience.  We will never know the difference that that man  made that day in the lives of  those children.

 

      



















          Every interaction
          with a CHILD 
      Makes an Impression...    
      Make it a positive one!

                   TODAY'S CHILDREN


Today’s Children are tomorrow’s doctors, teachers, and engineers.

Today’s Children are tomorrow’s mothers, fathers, aunts and uncles.

Today’s Children are tomorrow’s artists, singers, and architects.

Today’s Children are tomorrow’s carpenters, chefs and farmers.

 

What can we do to insure that they live with love not hate?
         We must first LOVE them…

What can we do to insure that they live with a spirit of giving not taking?
         We must first GIVE to them…

What can we do to insure that they live with an essence of helping not hurting?
         We must first HELP them…

What can we do to insure that they live with a spirit of cooperation not Competition?
         We must first let them experience
                             COOPERATION…
 

Our CHILDREN are calling to us…They need our unconditional love…

We must SEE with new eyes
   We must HEAR with new ears…
We must THINK with a clear awareness… and
   We must ACT with a new understanding…

As those outside of a child’s immediate family (doctors, teachers, grocery store employees, etc.) interact with children in a positive and rewarding way, children learn to trust. Their emotional need to connect and interact is met.

Opportunities present themselves on a daily basis for us to show kindness to a child....with a smile,  a kind word, a word of encouragement!

AND through the years, I've discovered that giving what I felt I didn't always receive as a child....fills me with the attention and kindness I felt missing in my life as a child.

Enjoy the gift of giving....

Another beautiful post, Sharon. Reading it I feel filled with Love and an urge to really Love the children more consciously, knowing the impact it has. When I teach meditation at UCSC I always create a space where Self Love becomes tangible. I know many of them (most of them) have never learned that skill and I feel so grateful to see them take it in and see themselves in a new Light. It's never too late, and the earlier we learn the better chance to create neural pathways that become the most used ones. Blessings

These are excellent points. People often have no idea children are watching them or how the simplest interaction can affect them. It is so important to be cognizant of how our words and actions can play a valuable role in the growing up of these small humans.

Some of the adults who had the biggest impact on my life weren't my parents or teachers, but other adults who came into my life, some for the briefest of moments. While you may never truly know the impact your kindness has on the child, it does make a difference.
