A loving moment lasts a lifetime

What you teach your kid stays with them forever

What we teach our kids has a lasting impact on their brains. 

What we teach our kids has a lasting impact on their brains. 

Recently, I was at a laser tag place dropping off Justin for a birthday party. I brought work to do with me while I waited for him and sat down on a couch. Within a few minutes, another birthday arrived attended by girls who looked like they were 13 or 14 years old. They were there for go kart racing.

When one of the girls asked her mom if she could have more time, the mom responded no- the world isn’t a fun place.

My jaw dropped upon hearing this and my heart became so sad. You should have seen the look on the girl’s face as she dropped her head.

This blog is not meant to criticize another in any way, esp. A fellow mom. This story is meant to be used as an illustration to reflect upon ourselves.

What we teach our kids has a lasting impact on their brains. Why teach them that the world isn’t a fun place. Does that person truly believe that no one is having fun? I’m having fun. I see lots of folks around me having fun.

What are some things that you say to your kids? Do you think about what effect it will have on them?
