Discipline can sure boggle the mind of any child. Sometimes it takes years for them to fully understand why parents do things a certain way. It sure took a long time for me to see some things differently!
How many times have your children required your attention, and instead of giving it to them, you had to work? Maybe your job requires you to stay late every day, or perhaps you work at home but have so much in your hands that you barely see your kids even though they are right there with you in your home! Many things come in the way of spending quality time with your children, wouldn’t you agree?
But you know what, many of those responsibilities can wait a bit, so you can sit down and do a puzzle or ride bicycle with them. Like a friend used to say: “The work will still be there tomorrow.” But your kids will grow so fast, you won’t even notice, until it’s too late. So today, is the day you should set some priorities.
Do you agree?
Funny how this often happens. Just the fact that someone else has our stuff without permission, bothers the heck out of us to the point of explosion! True that they could’ve asked for permission, and that needs to be learned, but we could also learn to share, right? Oh, and children also go through this.
