The Power of Freedom

As a Father of 3, I have seen the true Power of Freedom and the joy it brings to my children’s faces. The Freedoms they received from taking their first steps, saying there first words and/or riding their bikes without the need of training wheels. These freedoms, and many more, they have already experienced in life. But the ultimate freedom that they enjoy is the freedom to choose.

If we stop and think about it for a second each action above came from a choice. The first action of learning how to walk, they chose to overcome the bodily restraints placed on them as an infant. But how did they do that, how did they obtain such freedom to walk? Was freedom just handed to them? Was it just something they automatically had? Obviously not!! From the time they were born their bodies had to start using their muscles and their brains had to start making certain connections and destroying others in order to have the ability to just move, let alone balance or brace themselves…

Parents: 6 Ways to Be Extraordinary

Allow your kids to be with you
Take the time to let your children hang out with you. This is where they learn how to interact with others and see you in action. The best way to teach a child is by being an example to them.
Always tell your children to do the best they can  This gives them a goal to work towards. Allow their best to be good enough.
Congratulate them when they do!! Praise the act of trying more than their accomplishments  Sometimes just trying, even if they fail, teaches 
a greater lesson than actually succeeding.
Follow through on your promises
Most of all HAVE FUN!!!!
