Family is what is important
By Madeleine Whittaker
Becoming a parent is a big challenge and a huge change. It changes your life and the way you live forever, but it is the best change you can dream of.
Along with that change come the challenges, everyday. How you discipline your children, what you feed them, how you entertain them. All these things play on your mind as a parent as to whether you are doing the right thing.
On the tv at the moment is a program discussing extreme parental guidance. People on this program are having all sorts of problems with their children, a lot of it down to the smallest reasons as to how they were raised. With teenage girls dressing like adults and sneaking into clubs, with their parents knowledge and consent. Mothers who have 7 year olds who have never slept in their own bed, every single night they will only sleep in with their mum. And then you have the problem of eating, children being given too much to eat.
These issues that children and parents are having seem to becoming more and more common. There are constantly news reports and tv programs being done on children’s eating, behaviour problems and sleeping problems. As peoples and parents lives are becoming more hectic and busy, manic and stressful the children are then becoming affected, and their future is going to be a challenge as a result.
In the same way everything we as parents do today from bringing our children up, the choices we make financially, recycling within the home, energy saving, all of these things will rub off on our children and affect their future. But many people seem to have started to find it easier to not worry about the future, and the affect our actions have on that.
But we do need to wake up and think of these things. Be aware on how what we do affects everything, and the choices we make can make a difference.
As far as our children’s future is concerned, do we protect it by being energy efficient, it is what is on my mind when I write blogs like this for Enigin.
