Leading The Way
By: Carl The Muse
Today I dropped my son off with his science project and inside there was a pride, a feeling that was too bright to hide. It found a way out after some time and before I knew it the sun started to shine. A lady noticed my smile and she asked why I was so happy and I replied because of my child. Thats how I started my day and I feel good because I know I did my part in showing him the way
He is presenting that project happy and confident because of what he learned at home and how his time was spent. I taught him myself how to put in the effort and the importance of utilizing your time. I made sure the example he had to follow was mine.
We did that project as a family and as parents again we did our part, we watered our seed. We are preparing him for growth with the light and we are showing him the way into life.Yes, this was just one project but it was a family effort and now the cause is having the effect of a confident happy child and parents who feel ten feet tall.
Parents out there you should feel great about yourself when you know you have done your part to help your seed succeed.
You are doing something right because they are following your lead.
My son did that project while he watched me. He did that and I did this, thus I was showing him how to apply his gifts.
