“Memories of childhood were the dreams that stayed with you after you woke.” – Julian Barnes(England, England)
The best gift in childhood you can give your kids, apart from a good solid foundational upbringing and training, is fond and fun memories, loads of it!
In fact, it is these memories that make childhood lessons and parental trainings stick for life. Although memories don’t just happen but are made, however, the best ones are those that were mostly unplanned, short-lived and spontaneous. Great memories happen when you least expect and you’re just having fun with your kids.
“Don’t you wish you could take a single childhood memory and blow it up into a bubble and live inside it forever?” – Sarah Addison Allen(Lost Lake)
Nonetheless, life happens and bad memories are created either through the Parents’ actions or inactions. As humans, parents are not perfect. And no one expects them to be, especially their children. The most important thing is how we handle the unpleasant situation, its outcome and/or consequences moving forward.
But parents must realize that every experience they expose their children to is a potential memory, good or bad. The task is to give their children awesome memories that will outnumber the few bad ones.
Give your children the gifts they will never forget for life, even while you parent them into wholesome responsible and independent adulthood.
Fond Fun Childhood Memories – every kid deserve some! Even yours!
“ A lifetime of memories does not provide empirical proof of the value of living. No one memory has a quantifiable value to anyone expect the holder of the memory. Parenting in large part consists of creating positive memories for children. An accumulation of a lifetime of memories does create a musical score that we can assess from an artistic if not scientific perspective. Each happy memory generates a beat of minor joy that when stunt together form the musical notes demarking a person’s prosodic inner tune.” – J. Oldster(Dead Toad Scrolls)
