The Significant Seven… of Soulful Parenting?

By Laxmi Parmeswar

  1. Every child must evoke two feelings in parents/teachers and all adults- tenderness for who he/she is and respect for what he/she may become. 
  2. Children may not always be good at listening to adults but they never fail to imitate them. 
  3. Children need love especially when they do not deserve it.
  4. We spend more time providing for our children’s tomorrow and not enough time being with them today.
  5. When children are given too many material things, they become unruly, impatient children and unhappy, childish adults.
  6. Home and school are the places where children first learn to limit their wishes, abide by rules,  and consider the rights and needs of others.
  7. There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children- one is roots so they develop a solid grounding, and the other is wings, so they may soar towards their goals.
