The Voice of Reason

17 Jan

A Diamond in the Rough

As of late the current events have been focused on our children and I wish that they were all positive but mostly they have been sad and senseless.

There are so many terrible, difficult and challenging trends that affect our children, sometimes in a very tragic way.  The difficulties that are being experienced are also at times being sensationalized and as much we are all trying to acknowledge and remedy this globally the battle still continues.

It’s through our genuine presence in our children’s lives that we create a positive influence.  An influence that they will carry with them throughout their daily lives.

Believe me, I know how busy life can be.  The demands on our time can be overwhelming and sometimes we feel pulled in many directions, multi-tasking has become a normal part of our day.

Our focus on our children is the one thing that we can’t afford to compromise.  I can only speak as a Mom, I believe that our children are the most significant loves of our lives.

As much as we want to let them have some independence and allow them to experience life and grow, it’s so very important to build a solid, compassionate and genuine communicative foundation.

In creating this foundation we are providing our children with supportive values and morals that will become their own inner voice of reason.

It’s that inner voice of reason that helps to keep us all on the safest path as we navigate through different and challenging experiences.

As parents we should all be helping to provide the safest path for our children.  Sometimes they don’t want us to be so present but it is necessary and much later in life they will look back on it and be glad that we were there.

Be present.

Be supportive.

Love is Louder!

    I agree! Being present is important for many reasons, not the least of which is that if we leave them alone other forces will reach our children on particular issues. My book characterizes my feelings growing up that I was somehow less of a person because my cup size was smaller than those of my peers. I want my children to know that they are beautiful just as they are, and that they don’t have to look like the models in magazines and on TV to have high self-esteem.
