A form of innocence, loyalty, happiness and a blessing in disguise, children are born as a gift to the family and an abundant decor of wisdom, pride and honor. Their essence can never be forgotten and their ways, never get unnoticed.
An easier definition of children would be a pathway from heaven lured by God in its purest form. The best and the worst faced by them are always expressed and there’s never a secrecy of sorts.
The Harsh Reality: Loss of Innocence
As years pass by, the modern society adheres to the modern prospects of bringing children up in competition with the competitive society. In this rat race of always being the best and looking ahead of their age, the child’s innocence is completely lost and distorted. Earlier, childhood was a time when people decided their goals and ambitions and it was linked to academics, sports and artistic ventures. However, now-a-days in the name of art, there are subjective notions added to it.
Art gets linked to glamour, fame and materialistic needs. The actual meaning to success and performance gets lost with time. Such children do not understand the simplicity to life or sometimes, by god’s grace, usually find meaning to their innocence later on in life. But then again, it’s too late.
Need for a Clean & Simple Childhood
Childhood teaches you the test of what the future holds. Only if we realise this, can we take more effort in shaping the future of children whose creativity and ideas will help mould a future with sheer integrity, honesty, motivation and success.
An important aspect of a child’s future is the hygienic habits they adopt. Careful guidance on this path is a must as it helps them understand the importance of what the future holds for them. A cleaner surrounding is determined by a cleaner self and so is the case with society. To keep the society clean, there has to be hygienic habits absorbed by one self, first!
At early stages of life, cleanliness for children is always looked after by adults. But there comes a stage in life when children have to imbibe these values and inculcate a whole lot of habits that help them get closer to protecting their own health in the long run. With immense effort of imbibing these habits and values, children not only gain confidence in maintaining a healthy lifestyle but also make way for practising it for others!
What can we do?
As responsible adults, we must pledge to take into consideration the importance of educating children and putting them on a path of sincere hard work and prosperity. Lack of knowledge can often make a bright kid look at themselves differently and it self-trains them in a negative way altogether.
The journey from childhood to adulthood is one hell of a ride, encompassing all aspects of growth, strength and stability. It takes almost next to forever to realize the purpose of one’s life but a carefully shaped childhood can get you the necessary outlook towards life that can transform simplicity to wisdom!
Happy Children’s Day!
