The perspective of a child is simple. It is dependent upon those who raised the child and how they have loved them or neglected them. Children are vulnerable and clean of heart. It is the influence of their relatives, discipline, friends, teachers, education, media, video games, and TV that changes their perspective.
What have your children been exposed to and why? Are there places or people in their lives that are contributing to their childhood with goodness and positive guidance? Are there people or circumstances that are oppressing or providing negative influences in their lives?
As parents we are responsible for the upbringing of our children. We are there to love them, discipline them, guide them, instill values and goodness in their hearts and give them the opportunity to be a responsible citizen and kind hearted, generous person in our world. Giving our children love, confidence, faith, a good example through our own lives and opportunities to grow are the most important gifts we can give to facilitate a pure and simple perspective from our children.
Always be aware of the perspective of your children.
