Treating each child as a unique individual
We were all created as completely unique and special in our own way. We are all equal in the very fact that we are each different. This is crucially fundamental in raising our children.
Each and every child is special, with unique combinations of abilities and needs. Parenting requires that we treat each child as a unique individual. Respecting a child’s individuality means displaying a genuine acceptance of that child as a unique creation ~ who has unlimited potential within them to fulfil their true life’s purpose.
A child who is embraced for their exclusive attributes, accepted for their differences, welcomed for the way they see our world, applauded for dancing to the beat of their own drum; is a child who flourishes in their uniqueness. These children develop a greater sense of self-confidence and self-esteem.
Discovering our children, what makes them tick and what excites them, without any comparison to their siblings or others, I believe is true magic. What a magnificent contribution parents can make to humanity, through consciously raising wholesome children that we don’t simply regard as an extension of ourselves.
