For Our Unique Children…

When I read this for the first time, it hit a nerve, so close to my heart. I printed it off, and put it in my classroom at the time.
All children are unique, they grow into unique adults. If they were all to achieve the same successes, and excel at everything they did, what a boring world we would live in … It’s good that some kids are good at maths, or literacy, and others are great in sport, or the arts. We need those strong in the sciences too, but they don’t have to be top in everything!
Equally we shouldn’t compare them… Two best friends might be polar opposites, academically, and in personality, but their two different halves, make a fantastic whole… Don’t spoil it by comparing them, and playing one off the other, so their friendship inevitably suffers…

Let’s love our children for what they are, not what others expect them to be.

    Loved that! It’s so true. They’ll find their own place, with their own skills and the path that they’ve chosen. It’s as beautiful as watching a flower blossom, too.

    That’s a great statement of just accepting and LOVING our children the way we are and not the way we want them!!! Wonderful, Ritu! Thank you!
