4 Lessons I Want My Children To Learn

Updated: Jan 21, 2019

As a parent, there is an endless list of all the things I want my children to learn. It is my full-time job before anything else, to make sure that I wake up every day with the mindset of teaching my kids everything that life has to offer us. Regardless of what we do or how our days go, I make sure that there is always a lesson that needs to be learned. I take this job very seriously because every bone in my body is constantly striving to be the best role model in their life. With all the lessons that I teach them, I know that some of them can only be learned by their own mistakes and lessons. However, today I would like to share with you 4 important lessons that I want my children to learn. These are the lessons that I try to teach them at a very young age next to everything else that the day brings.

1. How to be grateful for the things that they have

It was once said that those who know how to be grateful already have it all. I want my children to adapt to thinking that it’s okay to want things but it is more important to be able to be grateful for all the things that they have in their life. I want them to learn that the daily things that are true gifts in their life like being healthy, being able to walk, being able to live and have the will to choose happiness every day deserves gratitude. At the end of the day, it’s not about what toy they got, or who got the new better thing. It’s about those simple little things that can give them the life that they can dream about. When you have everything that you need but you don’t have people who love you in your life to share it with then it can’t be truly enjoyed.

2. Learning how to do things for themselves

I’m not just talking about getting dressed and doing their own laundry. I want them to learn how to figure out how to do everything that they need in their life by themselves. I want them to know that I am always here for the help but the best things in life come when you learn along the way all the things that you need to do in order to get to the destination. I want them to know that they deserve the world and they need to wake up every day choosing to chase their dreams.

3. Learn to enjoy the journey not just the destination

It’s not always about getting to your destination or getting what you want. It’s about learning the process of getting whatever they want. It’s about falling in love with the game, not just the end results. That’s when the meaning of life can change and they can see that life its self is the journey. I want them to focus on that, and learn to enjoy every single day in whatever they do.

4. Be with the people who feed their souls

I want them to focus on being with the people who feed their souls. The people who are their people no matter what. The ones that light a fire within them that keeps them going and makes them stronger at times when life gets hard. These are the people that will show them all the lessons life has to offer. Lessons like unconditional love, forgiveness, and letting go. I want them to surround themselves with the people who's love will burn such a fire of passion in them that they will push themselves through the impossible.
