Parents are overworked right now, beyond what their normal responsibilities have been. The social isolation that is required has put stress on everyone’s lives. Despite this most people feel the isolation is necessary and important. Parents face a particular struggle with their children at home all day long, trying to school them. We all have to dig down deep inside of ourselves to find strength and perseverance through this difficult time.
Parents, your children are hungry. Please choose what you feed them wisely. Of course healthy food is important. However children are not just fed with food.
Equally important are the other things we feed our children. These include messages, stories, attitudes, tone of voice, language, perspectives, vibrations, family dynamics and values, lyrics in music, people they are exposed to. So feed your children well. You are molding your children by what you allow them to watch on television or YouTube. You are molding your children by the way you act and speak around them. You are molding your children by the stories you tell them at night.
So fill them with nourishment now, while they are home and with you all day long. Your conscious words and actions, and pure intentions will nourish your children well for the rest of their lives. And when they are teenagers and young adults, this thoughtful, focused and sometimes hard work you have put in will surely pay off.
