As my daughters are growing older and wiser day by day, I need to give them or show them rather, lessons of sharing and helping. If we parents don’t do then, how can we expect our kids to do it.
I tell the several things , many good things but rather, I would end up in doing something bad, since we are not perfect. It happens most of the times that, I end up doing right the opposite what I just asked them to do or be. So I am trying to infiltrate in myself ,the qualities I really want in my kids. Though it takes lots of my patience and time , I would rather not regret.
We need to share the good things rather than the bad things. Something I keep telling my daughter, as she goes to school and when I sent her something she likes, I tell her that you need to share it with her friends as they too do. The more you share the more your are blessed with more of the same. I keep telling her, this , I don’t how far she knows the importance , but Am pretty sure ,she will realise it one day.
Secondly , helping is important, but do not pretend to help. Nobody approaches someone , who shows off that you have helped them, rather being humble , helps you get more people to approach you. There is no point in helping someone or giving a hand , and pretend as if you did some favour to them, you make them feel like a burden and you just make them feel as if you just washed your hands off from their task and did something you didn’t want to do.
You might be of great help then , at the end of the day , but that person will never ever feel like requesting you again , even they feel so grateful to you for the help. I request my girls , to help me ,in anything I do so that they know what is the happiness you gain in helping and i ask them to help me only when they are happy to help rather than , showing me their sad face , while helping me.
Help becomes counted only when you do it wholeheartedly , sharing becomes happiness when you really admire to give your share your happiness .
