Dear children did you know that if we respect our parents we can be people with great wisdom?

Dear children did you know that if we respect our parents we can be people with great wisdom?

Listening to parents opens us to new ideas and thoughts, these unique thoughts are capable of changing us into bright and intelligent children.

When we respect our parents, it means that we obey every thing they tell us. Children who obey their parents are said to have discipline.

However children who do not want to hear what their parents say, are taken to be disobedient.

A child who disobeys his or her parents / guardian will never get the basic education parents give to their children while at home.

A child, who humbles himself and allows to be corrected by his or her parents, is a good behaved one.

As a result of obeying and listening to what parents tell them, such children get good communication and listening skills. They become good examples of other children.

Children need to show respect and fear. If you respect someone, it should not mean you to fear him or her. A person who has respect will stop doing something bad.

Dear parents/ teachers, disciplining a child are one of the most important responsibilities of parents. Disciplining a child should not be done out of bad faith but out of a good parental heart that aims at correcting a child from doing wrong. Discipline children but, don’t abuse them.
