World Peace through the raising of our children

by pew

Imagine a world where people tolerate differences of opinion, a world without terror, a world without conflict, a world without violence, a world where people respect each other and a world full of Peace. Is it possible? I believe so. Will we see it in our time? Who knows, but we can already begin the process towards a peaceful world, right now, through the raising of our children.

This is an introductory post to what will be a series of articles under the heading “World Peace”. In these articles I will examine the factors that affect all of us from the moment we are born. In particular how these factors influence our personalities and what we become in the future.

I believe wholeheartedly that parenting is the one major influencing factor in raising adults who can live in harmony in our world.

It begins with yourselves and you first have to create an environment for your child to grow up  in, that is loving, communicative and respectful. You must also ensure there is minimal negativity in your  household.

Once you have this in place you can then work on the raising of your child. Showing them through YOUR actions how to interact with others and the World.

Every aspect of parenting affects how your child views his/her place in the World. It is your responsibility to raise this child giving them a solid base to learn from and then to help build their confidence so that they can aim for the skies.

As an overview here is a list of subjects that will be covered by the articles ;

  • Proper pregnancy and birth – nutrition, natural birthing, holistic input
  • Bonding – Mother, Father and Baby. Skin to skin contact
  • Being role models – leading by example
  • Negative energy influences – television, arguments, stressful situations
  • Discipline – no smacking
  • Work – priorities and where your child fits into those
  • Child Care – who is raising your child
  • Education – when to start and what type
  • Health and Nutrition – intake of toxins and illnesses

The aim of the articles is to show that if we actually put thought into parenting then we can raise our children with a focus on Peace. If we become aware of what we expose them to on a daily basis then we can ensure we protect them from unnecessary negative influences.

If everyone consciously raises their children with a focus on loving and respectful interaction then we will achieve not only inner peace but peace on earth.

If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight.
If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy.
If a child learns to feel shame, he learns to feel guilty.
If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement he learns confidence
If a child lives with praise, he learns to appreciate.
He a child lives with fairness, he learns justice.
If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith.
If a child lives with approval, he learns to like himself.
If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, he learns to find love in the world.
