We may want to start maintaining our own morality, if our children are going to have a chance of being raised in a moral way. It stands to reason that the more moral the parent, the more moral the child will be.
A parents’ sensitivity to other people’s feelings and injustices can influence early moral development in their children. I think it’s what we, as parents should be striving for. I also believe it’s important for family members, including extended family, anyone looking after our children, to have the same moral standing.
Do we take time to consciously think about our moral standing? We know what we know, we do what we do; but we often fail to think about how what we do, will impact others in the longer term. Perhaps we should consciously think about that more.
Perhaps, we should also take the time to work things through instead of leaving our parenting to chance, in the hope that our children will come out okay. We should be empathetic, compassionate and conciliatory in our approach to problems, whilst incorporating patience and tolerance, whether we’re a parent or not.
The right influences go a long way to help build the foundations for any child later in life. It’s not just down to the parents, but influences must be uniform, across the board. We should want to guide in a way that helps serve children better. Not only will it go some way to helping children, but it will also make us better people.
It’s a far better way for us to live and believe these should be implemented.
