It’s hard to instill a moral compass in our kids’ lives when we follow what the world values. And what does the world value?
Humans Having….. or …. Humans Being?
Having Lots of Friends …or… Being a Friend to Many?
Having the Championship Trophy… or… Being a Good Sport?
Having the next Best Thing…or… Being Satisfied with what you have?
Having Access to the Best Cars, Schools, & Sports Trainers or Being a Life Long Learner?
When raising your little humans, pay attention to what you really desire for your child’s future… Do you want them to be Humans Having or Humans Being? It is so easy to fall into line with what the world is telling you to value.
All the other moms are signing their kids up for soccer at 3 years old…All the other families are working like dogs so they can have fancy cars and fancy homes… All the other families are putting their kids into specialized camps to increase their academic and sports skills.
Make sure your personal values come first not the world’s values and design your parenting goals around what matters most to you and your family…
If cars and houses and trophies and elite schools and camps are what you value then so be it.
BUT if a moral compass is what you want for your children, then you have to focus your family on making good choices. They have to understand that less can be more, tiny teachable moments happen all day long, and friendship skills and good sportsmanship can lead to a fun filled social life.
These lessons are all your child needs to have a valueable human life.
