How terrible it is that we have this wonderful world given to us and the freedom to choose between good and bad and so often we choose the latter. A part of the Pope’s message that still rings in my head is when he said the real danger in the world comes from man. We are blessed with the ability to choose to live in peace and harmony with one another yet we choose war. We build weapons of mass destruction and we slaughter each other. We abuse, condemn and reject one another and we choose hate over love. It is time for us to turn away from evil, turn away from hate, stop slaughtering each other and know that we are one people, all a part of the human race. We must reject hate and war and treat each other with acceptance and love.
Children Understanding the Importance of Getting a Good Education
Getting a good education is very important in today’s world. It has helped many individual to rise above a life of poverty by being able to get good jobs they would otherwise not have been able to get. Unemployment is at a high. Breaking into the job market is getting more and more difficult. Therefore deciding on a career and getting qualified in that area of choice is very important.
While parents should help their children in making the right career choice but the final decision should be theirs. Do not try to live your dreams through your children by pushing for them to make a career choice that you yourself had wanted but was not able to accomplish. Remember they will have to live with the choice they make. So encourage them to choose a career where they will be happy and comfortable with. If they choose to do something you do not personally like you can state your opinion but at the same time give them whatever support they need.
Encourage your children not to settle for mediocre, but instead strive to be the best that they can be. Everyone has potential and the sky is the limit. Let them understand that nothing good in life comes easy but with hard work and dedication they can achieve and surpass their goals in life.
