You can learn so much from children. Especially your own children.
They love and trust you unconditionally. They put their faith in you, never doubting for a second that you will always be there for them. That you will protect them, love them, and meet their needs.
As a parent, we have to try our best to meet their needs, protect the lives we build for them. They are our world and our future.
Sometimes kids learn early that the world isn’t fair. Their parents divorce, maybe they are homeless, or in foster care. The world they knew is gone, and they have to learn to adjust, Though this may lead to anger, hate, distrust, the need for therapy. They will never be the same innocent children again.
I do my best to protect my children and the lives they have. I long for them to grow up happy and healthy, loving and kind, trustful and caring.
I know at some point they will understand that the world we live in is also full of bad people, those who hate, are cruel, commit crimes, destroy lives. I want to protect them from that as long as possible. Because they are my everything. I brought them into this world hoping the best for them.
Their little faces looking at me, telling me they love me, trusting me to keep them safe. I never want to lose that.
I will protect them and the world that they know. Because I want them to CONTINUE to love and trust me unconditionally just as I will always love and trust them unconditionally.
Make sure you tell your children how much you love them. Make sure you do all you can to keep their little hearts and minds safe. Because the harsh reality of the world comes soon enough.
