Raising children in a me-first world (i)

The world is a marketplace where everybody is busy thinking of what to buy for themselves only. This makes it difficult for those in serious need to get exactly what they need for survival. 

Parenting comes with a lot of responsibilities. Loving parents protect their children from dangerous thinking, and one of such is “I must care only for myself.” 

In this article and the next, we are going to find out how parents can help their children become considerate and caring in a world where such spirit is rare. Parents, please you need to pay more than your usual attention to these articles.

Raising considerate children in a me-first world begins with what you teach them. In other words, it begins with what you do to and say about others in their presence. Children learn faster from the things they see and hear. How do you treat others? Does the way you do it reflect that you really have the interest of others at heart? Thinking and being careful of the way you treat people has a long-lasting impression on your kids. 

You need to teach them from their early days. Many of us think that it is impossible for children to take to heart what they are being taught because they, as most people say, are still little kids. But the truth is that, the earlier you start, the better. Teach your children at an early age in their life the importance of sharing what they have with others. 

Make charity a family norm. This doesn’t necessarily have to be that you leave for a charity home with your kids; you can teach them that right from your home. How do you treat strangers and visitors? Your willing spirit to give cheerfully is another thing children can’t forget. 

Help your children recognize the sacrifices of others. It is true that in our me-first world, we tend to focus on other’s negative parts more than their wonderful qualities. True, focusing on the good sides of others is not easy and is very challenging. But pointing out to your children the good in others and their wonderful qualities will move them to be more inclined to become selfless. 

Sit patiently for the second part of this discussion.

to my little view, I realized that kids saves things in their brains more than adults even if they don't understand it
