PARENTING 101: Your Children Are Not as you think

THERE ARE NO stupid children, only children with stupid behaviour.
THERE ARE NO clumsy children, only children with clumsy behaviour.
THERE ARE NO selfish children, only children carrying out selfish acts.
THERE ARE NO spiteful children, they only carry out some spiteful actions.
THERE ARE NO bad children, only children with bad character.

Children are children. They do not know any better than you do...and although we they sometimes act like they just ate of the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil, they do not.

It is your responsibility - as a parent - to teach, guide, educate, help, encourage, defend and liberate them (from stupidity ignorance).
You are not going to achieve this by believing that they are STUPID, CLUMSY, SELFISH, GOOFY or MAD.
You may even worsen the case if you successfully make them believe OR make other children feel that they are IDIOTIC, SENSELESS or BAD.

"Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of ourchildren." - Charles R. Swindoll

YOU can't change a stupid child, but you CAN change the stupid behaviour.
YOU can't change a selfish child, but you CAN change a selfish attitude.
YOU can't cure a naughty child, but you CAN help amend his naughty lifestyle.

***But it all starts with you - what you think about them, what you SAY to them and the impression you cause them to have about themselves.

Say: "You are a bad child", and you likely gonna impress some badness in them.
Say: "You just did a naughty thing" and you still making some room for them to be nice.
