MIND YOUR CHARACTER – SUNDAY SPECIAL!!!
===================================
— PARENTS, YOU CAN’T CHOSE EVERYTHING!

*Dear caring and concerned 21st Century Parent, what’s that I see on your planning note for your child?
*You may need to do a review soon to avoid heart breaks and disappointments.
*It was really interesting, faster and easier for you when he was a new born and growing into a toddler.
*You had 💯% audacity to choose his brand of diaper, cream, dresses, toys, food, pre-school, nursery/primary.
*In fact, you unilaterally chose his secondary school. And I see you have already carefully shopped for him the right secondary and tertiary institutions, the location, the course of study, where to serve, where to work, which Church to continue to worship, who to marry, where to marry from, the hall for wedding reception, etc. 
*All things being equal, you would love to follow your plan for his life because it would offer him the best! Right?
*Hey, did you know that parenting wasn’t intended to be absolute ownership, but more of trust! DO YOU REALLY CARE ABOUT YOUR YOUNGSTER’S FULFILMENT?
*Then you must STUDY the trends and be SENSITIVE to signals that point you to a new season in your child’s journey, requiring adjustment in parental control mechanisms.
*You should know that most children become emphatic and very clear about what they want out of life from JSS 3 (or just as soon as teenage years enter).
*Please don’t get it mixed up, that may be your last point of total control or influence on choices! SO GET READY!
*Now that tot, whose first 25years life journey you had so well planned in your notes has suddenly given you an impression that he knows what he wants!
*Rather than get stupefied, shocked or feel undermined, check if that’s the sign for relational switch over time!
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
WHAT TO DO?
1. CONVERSE, COMMUNICATE, COUNSEL.
2. ADVISE, ADMONISH, AGREE.
3. Make ENQUIRIES, EMPATHIZE.
4. Be PATIENT and PEACEFUL!
4. Do the above repeatedly, prayerfully but SINCERELY and SELFLESSLY too.
*Are youngsters choices always right? Maybe not, but I tell you the truth, to avoid defiance, switch offs, indifference, regrets and to help him sail free of hitches, you must change from 💯% DOMINEERING PARENTAL INFLUENCE.
