Our children are our most valuable treasure, we love them madly, when we know we are going to be parents the feeling is undescriptable, so many emotions, it is almost impossible to explain, then we wait for nine months and we are excited, worried, scared, happy, all at the same time, when they come into our lives, they become the center of our universe, filling us with so much love and joy that we will never be the same.
As they are growing, we realize that they need more that just us to be entertained, they spend some time alone and that time must be filled with something, it is imperative to fill that time with some activities that contribute in a positive way, giving values, principles and a good education to minimize the risk of idleness, which is very negative for their proper development. If it’s possible, those activists must be supervised to assure that children receive the best influence from their environment.
We surely would like to be with them all time, guiding and protecting them from any negative influence, but what we really need to do is to encourage them to think, to solve problems, to be themselves and to exploit all their talents, in order to raise self-confident, valuable and emotionally stable adults, preparing them for life.
