Permission To Be Human

This came at the right time as some members of my family have been a bit grumpy at certain times today. When I saw this quote it was one of the lightbulb moments. How often do we tell our kids off for being grumpy? At the same time we give permission to our mood swings, claiming that we’re only human. Well our children are as well… 🙂

  1. Wow!
    We want our children to be children but at the same time we don’t want them to be human.
    How contradicting is that?
    This came at a prefect time for me because I was raised during the times children are to be seen and not heard. But God is using my wife to help me break that chain.

    • Well, I guess there are two sides to it. I mean I deserve to be told off for being too grumpy too, but in some cases you can’t help yourself and as much as you try to control it, it’s just not happening. Those are the moments you deserve a bit of understanding. If you really try.


      • Oh yes, I completely agree. We all have our bad days and need that understanding, especially children whose confidence can be hurt so easily. They need to know that we’re all human and everyone has a bad day every now and then. Life is hard, especially for those who are still learning who they are in this big world.
