Would you agree with me that it is futile looking around for something which you are holding in your hand? What we do to help one another and especially our children is not hidden from us. We already know what to do. It’s just a matter of putting the things into action and watch the change happen in the lives of our children.
It is not that we do not have time or “the time” as some often say. Each day is twenty-four hours — no more, no less and all of us operate within that frame. What is obvious is that we choose how time is utilized. Given that we must rest and recuperate, our waking hours must be used to bring about the desired results that we need. We must decide how our time used on the various things that need to be done. It is better to get three things done well than to attempt to do a dozen things inadequately. So, here’s what we can do. Insist on the “must dos” and devote the time that is needed to them. Do that without fail. For example, a must do is to spend time teaching your child or children the foundational things they need to make life work for them. Teach them to be prompt, focused, purposeful, habitual, and deliberate, to name a few. Notice that I said “teach” not “tell”. It is important that we understand the difference.
You will also agree with me that there are many times that we tell things to others and it does not make any difference what ever. That being the case, stop telling. It may be more effective to show rather than tell. There are very good reasons why we have eyes, so let’s get our kids looking at what we do. Mind you, I am not saying that we must never tell our children to do things, but we must be mindful of the effect of what we do. Also, children are very good at picking up what they see more than what they hear. Do you wonder why you’ve heard others, not you, making this famous observation about children — ” are you deaf”? Don’t laugh! We are just as guilty of ignoring what we hear. It’s true, that, “seeing is believing”. I’ll take that a little further and say that “seeing is convincing”. Unless is person is visually impaired, it’s hard to argue against what was shown.
Let’s use the wisdom we have acquired over time, the wisdom of the aged and live it out in the sight of our children. Do it in the morning, at noon, and in the evening. Do it daily, without fail and watch you children soar. While you are at it, sprinkle what you do with love. Love is a good season. It enhances so much.
Folks, we know what to do, so let’s do it.
