We must love out children for who and what they are.
If you try to force your child to be something he/she is not, you'll be forcing them to spend years of their life not even being alive.
If you choose to neglect what your child is made of, they will most likely never forgive you. Why? Because if you hurt your child, they probably won't know you. Parents that care, ask questions; They take the time to discover their child. Parents that don't, just bark orders, and expect their children to obey, like a dog.
Human beings are not dogs.
A child that maybe capable of great things, could have no motivation to do so, and qite possibly never achieve their potential, because they might feel that they have no one that cares. Everyone needs to have a someone. A reason.
I believe a child can't turn out bad, if they feel safe in their own skin by their parents. I feel if that is the case, they would have all the love and respect they would need, and have no desire to want to hurt someone else, because they wouldn't feel angry, and unloved.
And if you give you child these things, and they still turn out bad, they might simply have a problem, that sometimes can't be helped.
But even so, i've seen a lot of parents that aren't happy with their lives, and then when they have kids, they see themselves through their children's eyes. They see the child that they were, that wasn't able to stand up for what they believed in, and in turn, they think the child should suffer. The parent not realizing that they're setting themselves up to suffer once more, once the child gets older.
I've seen TOO many parents have a STRANGLE hold of ABUSE on their children, and it's sickening. And it's something I will ALWAYS stand up against.
Why? Because if I don't, thats one more parent who thinks they can take advantage, and obscure the love of a child. And there's not many sins bigger then that.
Parents picking on innocent little 5 year old's? ABSOLUTELY not. How much more of a coward can you be.
