Exchange ‘what’- for good Moral Values??

Sometimes as a mother/a concerned woman who cares about the directions some of our young people/children are choosing in the light of the economic downturn, these concerns can be quite worrying, especially when we try to emulate leaders of our society as example setters.
Basic Solutions
 “What is the moral example being set for our children in our society today”? Especially to kids whose parents are trying really hard to instil in their children the good morals and values- how to use resources which are available to them e.g.: The young person who is out of work, the single mom who is saying to her son by encouraging him so that he does not fall by the way; “son you can do some voluntary work in the area of your choice of skills, maybe eight out of ten the company will take you on if a vacancy is available. “We need to encourage our children (not only ours but others even in our community); you may not be a parent but share the same values… speak to a child, a young person, your neighbour’s child, a family member or relative. Give them a sense of hope, let them know that all is not lost; help them to explore different options, or avenues for their survival in this time and for the future.
We need to develop in our culture how to be more self-sufficient/ self- reliance, to decrease the level of poverty from among us… in that way less focus will be displayed in the culture of ‘Bling’ (spending on unnecessary items- just to be part of The crowd/group, especially the fashion culture) where you find, this one trying to outdo the other; there are some suggestions that these issues are more dominant among women e.g. The hair styles that costs a fortune and the children has insufficient food (that is not responsible behaviour for women of virtue) and the expense for a social night- the child/children needs that money for e.g. School supplies.
Taking the challenge
As women we have to be strong in our moral beliefs for what’s right and remain in the fight in maintaining good values that we so desire our children to practice. The struggle is on- the battle of the mind and peer pressure, to have what you cannot afford and the rat race of ‘what I want ‘and not ‘what I need ‘- even though I am jobless, my dependence is on my family, the State? Let us be more mindful of our children’s needs and put them first before our own desires. We should not regret it in the long run, at the end of the parenting journey.
Thought
Our children needs good example setters for this generation- To guide our children to be more productive, using resources around that are available to them.
Mothers you can instil in your child/children that Perseverance and Persistence are precious gems they are able to possess, through hard work and by them trying to make something worthy out of something insignificant…That would be an achievement.
Scripture Quote:
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth*. 3 John 4 (KJV)

Be Blessed

Our motto: To Empower, to Build, to Restore.
