Hello friends, happy to connect again. As i promised, I wish to share a few thoughts on Character Training. Character Training is essential in our human life. Bible says, train up a child in a way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6.
This is a command from God and every parent or guardian must adhere to it. In the process of developing our children, we must “Choose the right path!”
We all want our children to grow to be well mannered and show respect to other people. Our character is what defines us. It is what determines how we respond to situations and circumstances of life.
If children don’t learn virtues and good behaviours when they are young, problems can develop with serious consequences as they grow older. An example is, a child who always frowns! He or she will grow and would not have any friend, because nobody wants to hang around with a gloomy person. Everyone wants to be with someone who is cheerful. A cheerful and happy person always attracts certain favours than someone who is always gloomy.
Trying to shape a child’s character is not an easy task, especially when you have to deal with a hard headed child. As a parent learn to stay calm, don’t try to impose your ideas on them, listen to them and avoid arguments. Work with them and respect their opinions. Create a congenial atmosphere at home.
Developing a child’s character, needs both parents, the school, the church, grandparents and the community as a whole.
Children should be taught virtues like, love, respect, patience, loyalty, integrity, generosity, self discipline, good communication etcetera. These are the necessary tools they will be using to sail through life.
Character training is vital because it helps the child to become responsible and good citizen.
It will help them with problem solving skills.
They will respect one another.
They will show love and care for others.
Interact well with friends and family.
They will be able to make good decisions.
Last but not the least, parents must ensure that the choices they make for their children is the right choice and also develop the capabilities of each child.
Well, that’s all i have for you.Thanks. Watch out for more posts. Love to you!
