Prepare your child for a great future

Can you prepare your child for a great future? Is there anything you can do so that your child becomes a great person in life?

The answer is yes.

I just saw a video of a kid of about five years imitating the cerebration of Mass as a Catholic priest does in the Catholic Church.

It was amazing because he was perfect. The Christians of his community were there and played the part of the congregation as in a real Catholic Mass.

I felt so impressed by the seriousness of all the actors. It reminded me of the first Archbishop of my Archdiocese. As the story goes, when he was a kid, he used to gather his school mates and celebrate Mass just like the kid in the video.

He grew up not only to be a priest but a great priest; in fact an Archbishop.

In educational psychology we learned that the child is the father of the man. This means what we learn as kids determines the type of adults we become.

Wise parents take time to nurture their children and prepare them for success. Many of the delinquent acts we experience in our society are the result of the inability of many parents to nurture their progeny as they should.

Proper child upbringing is very important. Good parenting will produce successful people in society.

What type of parent are you? How are you bringing up your kid or kids? Are you getting them ready for outstanding success? What you want your children to become, you must start preparing them for it in their childhood.

100 letters to my daughter. What I am happy I told her No. 5



My dear daughter,

How are you today? Let me begin this letter with a quote that was in my last letter. Because of its importance I like us to revisit it. Do you remember that quote? It goes thus: “In life, the most successful people are not those who focus on where they are coming from but those who focus on where they are going.” Romilia Quotes
I hope you remember the story of Nchang Belta.

In my last letter I told you the challenges that she faced and how she was able to bravely overvome them and emerge on top in life. What makes me so impressed by Belta’s achievement is the fact that she created her opportunity and made excellent use of it.  Many girls have opportunities but waste them either through carelessness, laziness, or recklessness. We find girls whose parents send them to excellent and expensive schools but who still end up failing in end-of-course examinations and in life. This is a pity.

My advice to you, which I have given to all young people I have met is, learn to use your opportunities. Do not waste them.

I like you to take responsibility for your life. Take responsibility for what you become. Like Nchang Belta, pave your way to where you like to be. Know that you can get to any position, and I mean any position you choose, if you are determined enough and work hard.

Always bear in mind that life is not easy. There is tough competition everywhere. Before you become somebody, you must work very hard. Do not think that you can fold your arms and sit and just become rich, great, or outstanding. Far from it. Nothing worthwhile it is said, comes easily in life. There is no free lunch in this world. You have to gird your loins and work for your success.

As you pave your way through life, take note that there are many obstacles or setbacks to overcome. As you shall be struggling to grow, there will be people who shall try to do everything to put you down or to block you. You must make sure you avoid or skip the pitholes that you shall find on your way. Some of these pitholes will be very obvious; others shall not be. In fact, many will be invisible. Hence, you must be very careful otherwise what you may consider safe ground may be the most slippery ground and when you step on it you will find yourself crashing badly. You will come across people who will love you and help you succeed; and others who will hate you and try to throw banana peelings on your path. You will come across those who will deceive. Know how to go about life.

Do not let jealous and envious fellows stop you from getting to where you want to go. Do not let people with bad intentions block you. Do not listen to people who have nothing but discouraging messages for you. Be wise and smart and know that this world is not for the naive, or sluggish individuals but for wise and courageous ones.

You are still young and your future is ahead of you. You have great chances. Make the most of your opportunities.

It is my prayer that God may continue to take care of you.
I hope to read from you soon.
Until then,
this is your darling father.

A child’s prayer

God our Father who are most high;
I thank you for bringing me
Into this world;
Thank you for my parents;
You know why you gave
Them to me,
And me to them;
They cannot bring me up
On their own;
They need your grace
For their hearts to be filled
With love for me;
To have the wisdom,
The will,
The energy;
The financial
And material resources
To bring me up
In a way that will please you;
Provide them all the means. O Lord;
Help me to be a good child
On my part, to my parents;
Especially to you;
To love you and obey you always;
To obey my parents and teachers.
Help me in my school activities
Especially my studies;
When I go wrong, forgive me.
Make me strong in my faith in you.
And give me a prayerful heart;
Prepare me to serve you
Well so that more glory
May come to you.
Thank you for always being there
For my parents and entire family.
May your name be glorified
In all the earth!
Amen!

Dear loving child

Dear loving child,
It gives me great joy
To write this letter
To you;
I like you to know
That I care;
That you are the center
Of my life;
Knowing that you are
Succeeding
Gives me great joy;
It is so sweet
That you are doing
So well;
I say a big “bravo” to you.
My prayer is, forward ever;
Backward, never.
May you be the light
That shines in this dark
World in which we live;
Light up
All the world around you;
And why not far beyond?
Make sure you carry
God as your armor
Wherever you go.
Go to bed with a prayer

On your lips;
And get up with a prayer;
Pray a lot;
As the Bible commands,
Pray without ceasing;
We will keep on praying
For you;
That the angels of God
May surround you
As you go in and out,
As you come out in the day,
And turn in at night;
May the angels take care
Of all your needs!
And protect you
From the dirty plans
Of the evil one!
Stay well
And know that we love you.
Your loving dad.

Bringing up your child

How are you bringing up
Your child?
Your child that you love
So much?
What are you saying
To your child?
And what are you doing
To your child?
Your child that you love
So much;
Say the right things
To your child;
And do the right things
To your child;
Your child that you love
So much.
It matters the way
You bring up your child;
Example is the best teacher
To your child
That you love so much.
