importance of a child's playtime
wealth of the planet is our children. They are precious!
Treat them as such.
And this includes teaching them about the very important two
sides all people have and how to deal with that to keep the little
devil that may be starting in them at
bay, by choosing
the good side.
At times they may need a little realignment
when they are leaning toward an eventual harmful side in life. Training
them now keeps them out of prison later.
Teach them how to
love. Teach them to accentuate
their good side by encouraging
them, like 'You are so kind to let your friend, who doesn't have a tricycle,
try yours a couple
of times.' 'Stroke the cat gently and he'll purr.' 'Be kind to people and
to animals, as they too, like you, are living
things that have a soul.'
"They were two twelve year
old boys; one had little of anything, as the dad could only find temporary
and low level work. The family was of five kids. The mom was busy looking
after things as best she could.
"The other boy came out of
a more stable life. But these two were friends. They only saw each other
when the family who was poor was invited over for lunch and an afternoon
visit. This they did every so often. The old car they owned had an on again
off again affair with its life.
"One could easily see the
food provided when they came over, was very welcomed indeed.
Their girls had dresses that were faded and scruffy.
The boys, clothes with holes.
"The two boys headed out
for the bus on their way to see a movie at the downtown theater, while
the others visited. Only one of the boys had money, but he treated the
poorer boy. As they were walking and talking on their way to the theater,
it was noticed that one of the poorer boy's shoe soles
as he walked. Cardboard could be seen. They couldn't afford shoes and decent
clothes as they were just trying to feed the kids and get by as they could.
Anyhow, they got to the theater and saw the movie. It was suggested by
the better off boy 'Let's go have a bite, I'm buying!' So they headed to
a close restaurant, then back on the bus.
"The families didn't again
get together. It was too difficult for the poorer family to come over by
bus, if they even would have the money for all of them and they didn't
seem to want to have people over to their place or for them to be picked
up and taken out, but the heartfelt feeling for them all would remain."
Let them know when you see
your children are expressing higher
consciousness. When they are expressing high consciousness, any bad
side gets depleted.
A most important quality
to instil in
children is honesty.
atmosphere to have with children is happiness.
Give your child your best self and that good
example will affect them in a positive manner. Be lighthearted
and encouraging toward children. Avoid
them. Avoid sapping
17:22 "A merry heart does good like a medicine, but a broken spirit
dries the bones." Proverbs 15:15
"All the days of the
afflicted are evil.(or,
are not happy for the one afflicted)..."
Don't put children down,
lift them up. Kids always do things you see as wrong. It's part of learning
to grow up. As long as their mistakes aren't serious, continue to strengthen
them in their good points by being happily involved with them and the wrong
ways will vanish. Pray for them. Meditate
about them. Think about them. Do your best in making sure the attitude
in the home is conducive
the best of what they are inside that needs opportunity to come out.
Teach your children that
God is always with them:.Hebrews
13:5 "...he has said,.I
will never leave you, nor forsake you.".But
close is God to each of us? One knows God is there by the sureness
of one's connection.
You know that's for sure once you've proved
God's existence. Then you're well on your way and well in your way.
A child's prayer will help
him of her keep in tune.
A child left
to itself will not grow to be a happy child like these
children. Involvement produces happy children, that is, if the parents
are of decent quality. This is the way to ensure avoidance of the hard
knocks of life. Why? Because we reap
what we have sown. You don't want them to begin to sow negatives that
will later affect them.
Being honest lays the pathway
for reaping good things for them. Dishonesty brings heartache, maybe not
right away, but the universal laws set up are inexorable.
They always work. Keep your children on the blessed side of life. Teach
them well. That is, teach them high
consciousness ways so they benefit all their lives. Teach them that
no matter what, honesty will prevent their lives from leaning
into the dark side, wherein are many hurts. Teach them to forego any way
that gives them advantage at another's expense and what one takes from
others, he or she is actually taking from self. Train them well. Train
them out of any evil. How? Teach them good
things and if it seems like it's too late for that, ask
Bruno for help. What's more important than children?

does this come about and what is its importance to your child's future
health and well-being?
Be aware that richness of life does not equate to abundance of goods. Teach
your children to be frugal.
Teach them by painting scenarios
for them, based on where they are in their intellectual growth. For example,
they discover the sexual organs and may want to see if other children have
them too. So, they may fiddle
around with theirs and if out of parent's sight, fiddle around with the
sexual organs of others as well. Their curiosity leads them into such things,
but not being supervised, leaves opportunity for the dark side to
implant directions that will lay groundwork toward a pathway of hurt.
Parents must teach their children those things that will pave their futures

Grabovoi. A little story
that illustrates the principle.
Who cares about kids? Most
parents do. Those who don't are in for paying a heavy price later in life
as the kid goes awry.
Don't cheat a kid out of a great future. If you do, your heart will ache
when his or her tomorrows have to be regulated by the penal
system or worse, as was in the case of ancient
What would your child choose?
Four years old she received her first helium filled balloon from a local
store having an anniversary. The color was purplish-red. Soon after leaving
the store, her mom took her to a close local park which had a lake catering
to only sailboats. She, of course took her beloved balloon for the walk
down the hill toward seeing the boats sailing on the lake. She stopped
to put down a drink her mom had bought her on the way to the park. She
needed to adjust her socks that had slid inside her shoes. At that point
the balloon headed upward so fast she could not catch it. She commented
"Mommy, look at that balloon going up". She was in wonder over it rising.
Many kids would have viewed
it as a loss and cried, as it would have spoiled their day. Not, Ella!
She was a child filled with amazement at so many things and saw the positive
side of everything. Her mother had taught her how to look at both sides
of every situation and urged her to always choose the side with a sense
to it, the side where there was something to learn, something to gain.
Teach your children to do
good and they'll be good. And the best way to do that is by being the change
you want to see them become. It's by example children pick up behavior.
Teach your children how
One of the things you don't
want for your kids is when they are older, for them to have memories of
bad deeds that keep creeping into their present attention. This is tormenting.
The way to prevent any torment is not have the bad deed happen in the first
place. To do this parents must be involved with and watch their children
so they know at all times what their children are up
to and who they are with and what is going on with them. Of course this
advice will be like water off a duck's back for
3:20,21 "Children, obey.(original

Lord'?). Fathers, provoke.(original

children to anger.('to

they be discouraged."
Children desperately need
things and those things are the
things of high consciousness, otherwise, if you allow them to just
grow up and then to choose the way they think is right from their
mental database of what they have learned, they are already in trouble:.Proverbs
fairy tales are good to use. Most are not.
Children are programmed by
developing egos to the greater or lesser extent dependent upon the
degree of good parental influence. Remember they are highly influenced
by their peers
and in a new baby, also mostly by the environment. This means the baby
acts mostly from the soul level. The tool of creating is consciousness,
so, the baby has to grow into this. His or her consciousness, of course
at this baby stage, just could not handle what an older child could. If
it feels pressure to leave the comfortable place with the soul it presently
has, this can precipitate
Babies pick up on the prevalent
emotional environment surrounding it. Babies come here with the same task
as we came with, that of making the world a better place for all, a place
of transformation through clearing negativity it encounters
as it grows, airing out the negativity using its creative tools of imagination
and heartfelt intent. When a small child paints a picture, no matter what
it looks like, he or she can tell you a story about it. And the story told
with a vision that is even more powerful.
A parent with spiritual insight
can 'see' the environment the child is in and can take loving steps in
mind to ameliorate
it as necessary.
The way of the ego gets us
freedom. Instead it gets us the
mass mind of humanity, so we all are exposed to whatever is in it and
here are pains of experience, the pains
including addictions to money, power, control, greed, drugs, too early
sex and all others behaviors based on selfish intent,
which are never seen as pains when steeped
in the ego level.
Guidance away from the destructive
things of the ego level is a most important parental responsibility. Better
to have them learn by parental and good peers' examples rather than hard
knocks of experience.
For children to understand
just what to listen to from their parents, their parents must talk to
them and thus, be involved with the development of their children.
good time for this.
Children have such an advantage,
the younger the more so. All of us have a predilection
towards evil. It is just the way
it's all set up for an overall great purpose for humans on Earth.
It can be such an advantage
to have smart parents, parents who comprehend
how to bring up their children. Parents guided by their love for their
children will produce children to be proud of. Why
would this be so? They will become ideal members of a better society made
up of more people who are effective with others, because they know all
Ask kids what came to mind
when they did something. Raise your child with spiritual skills. Spiritual
things must be cultivated, nourished and encouraged. Teach them to
look for meaning in things in a simple way.("What
does this mean to you
Susie? What did you like about that experience? How do you think the tree
grows? Why do trees always grow up and not into the ground, ever? Why so
many different kinds of trees and flowers; look at the design of these
flowers. Why do the clouds move? What is rain the consequence of? Is there
a way to get the fallen leaves back on the tree? Why do you think people
pass on? Do you think they could come back here? How is it that birds can
fly? Why does a garden grow? How come all seeds don't look the same? What
could have been a better way to...? a happier way? a more efficient and
productive way? Why do you think that they are building that structure?
Why do they make cars to be so shiny do you think? Look at those flowers,

Why do so many things in nature mimic

What did you do most today that you liked? Did you get all done you wanted
to? Who are those you would like to be your friends? What do you see about
them that you like? What do you see about them that you don't like? Are
they acting in a way that makes others and them happy? What do you think
about the way your body is developing? What is it that you like about the
book you are reading? What new words have you learned today? What is an
interesting book you have read lately? Why was it interesting to you? Do
you think the invisible supports the visible? How do you think it does
this? Teach them to observe
in what they see and so on; if you are alert, your children will also become
that way and they will be wide eyed about life and interested in others
and the things of others).
Children learn to act out
the demands of others.(slavery).
You don't want your child to obey out of fear and punishment. That's world
controller stuff. We are now out of
that age of subjugation
and into a higher consciousness realm,
at least in
the mind and what's in the mind comes into physical reality soon
after. And it now is.
Teach them what to put in
their minds. Expose them to the good of life. Take them often into nature
where the unmoving molecules are
of higher consciousness and are more easily sensed.
To this end parents need
to know just how to produce such ideal children:.Proverbs

'rod of correction', see on at the verse's link).shall

Be involved with children
in perhaps learning with them how to build a skateboard ramp, a treehouse,
a garage. They will see how and learn to build something from scratch.
Are you teaching your children to swim? Have you taught them to write a
little story? or to tell an interesting story? Are you teaching them how
to deal with their friends and what to look for in a good friend?
Once they've seen how you
think, it's their turn. Ask them to make up a story right then and there
and tell it to you. Perhaps at bedtime is a good time for the story. Even
a two or three sentence can be a story. Children need to realize that they
can be successful at what they attempt. They need to draw on that which
is within them, even from their limited experience. They need to see that
some things indeed do work, that some things are indeed worthwhile investing
time in and that others aren't.
