There is no bigger love than the love of a child for the parents.
There is no bigger trust that the trust of a child in the parents.
There is no bigger joy than the joy of a child.
There is nothing as soothing for a child than being held by the parents.
There is nothing more awarding for a child than seeing the proud in the parents eyes or hearing them cheer.
So why would you crush all of this? Why would you want to crush this love, crush this trust, crush this joy? Why would you take this soothing feeling away? Why would you make your child feel worthless? Why would you talk down on them?
Dear Parents: Don’t take love, trust, joy, the soothing feeling and pride away from your child.
Because there is no bigger love than the love of a parent for the child, no bigger joy than seeing your child, no better feeling than hugging your child and being hugged by your child. No better feeling than seeing the love for you in your child’s eyes.
Why would you want to destroy this little sparkle in those eyes?
Why would you let your frustration and anger out on the person who has nothing to do with it. The person, who loves you no matter what… Why would you abandon the one person, who trusts you 100%? Why would you let others do bad stuff to the one person, who trusts you 100% and would do everything for you not to get hurt? Why would you look away, when this one person, who trusts you and loves you no matter what, gets hurt again and again and again?
Why would you call this little person names, or demolish this little person self esteem? Why would you want to keep this little person’s confidence so low?
You might have a good explanation for all of my question and this explanation might be good enough for you. Unfortunately…
But it will never be good enough for me. Because I just don’t get it. I do not understand. And I will never ever understand!
