As a loving mother, do you have a sense of fulfillment about your children? If not, you most likely have neglected teaching them how to appreciate life. However, I t is never too late to start, especially if your children are still between the elementary ages of 5-10. The latter is the age range children are more receptive toward learning new behaviors and mindsets.
Teens are more set in their philosophies about life. Therefore, they are more difficult to reach when it comes to how to act in life. But it can be done.
Children cannot teach themselves self-respect. They must be introduced to this inner quality by an adult who knows what self-respect is all about. That responsibility belongs to you: the mother. The tender loving care of a mother is vital if a child is going to appreciate life and possess a sense of value.
The Importance of Self-Respect
Without self-respect and appreciation for life, a child will live a life of cold existence. He or she will not feel loved and valued. And because he cannot feel loved and secure, he will not be able to express love and comfort toward anyone else.
Society is filled with children who can’t empathize with others. Instead of sympathizing with the troubles of others, they are unable to offer comfort when comfort is needed. Such children may grow up to make miserable marriage partners.
This non-responsive-ness to the hurt and pain of others is a result of not receiving the type of mother-love needed to be a caring individual.
Therefore, to develop self-respect and appreciation for life in a child, his mother must teach and demonstrate kindness, generosity, and love it. Without these inner qualities, a child will not be able to get along with others or work with others either in the workplace or personal life.
The Essence Great Motherhood
A great mother allows a child to see her in action. She demonstrates kindness and love toward all people, regardless of cultural diversity.
A great mother teaches are children that they are special because of these qualities instilled within their hearts.
When a child understands that he possesses the special qualities that allows him to make a difference in the lives of others around him, he gains great self-respect for himself. He appreciates life because he appreciates doing good for the people around.
A sense of fulfillment in motherhood came when a mother had dedicated her entire being to raising a child that make others around him feel like a million dollars. His presence is magnetic due to the love, kindness and generosity instilled within his heart.
Your children are your representatives wherever they go in life. Whatever good thing the do, you shine. Therefore, teaching them the right way to go is the foundation of obtaining a sense of fulfillment.
