5 Important Lessons Every Child Should Learn
Every child should learn to obey their parents! Some day it may save that child's life! I remember waiting with Gracie at her school for traffic to ebb so we could cross the street.
for some reason she started to step out just as a speeding car was passing by. In that split second that I called her nmae, she stopped. If she hadn't been used to listening to me, she would have been killed. No doubt in my mind about that!
Every child should learn good manners! This one lesson will get them far in life! Being polite has to learned! And it's an art!
Every child should learn respect for all living things! After all, isn't that the whole idea? Do unto others as you would have them do to you.
Every child should learn to respect themselves! So much competition on every level of life can demean a child who thinks they don't deserve the goodness of life!
Last, but not least, a child should learn to believe in a Higher Power! The ultimate lesson in life! We are not alone! When everything else fails them, they can look to the skies!
