We are all seeing on social media the pictures of 1st days of school. From pre-school, kindergarten, high school, and even college.
These pictures are great bookmarks for the kids but are mainly a trophy for the parents.
These parents have molded these children into who they are. They are proud and they are now giving the trophy away.
Imagine winning a gold medal and every year you give a piece of it away to strangers. Will they appreciate it? Will they take care of it? Will that gold medal mean as much to them as it does to you.
Like it or not you don’t have the choice you have to give it away.
Create in your child a spirit of gratefulness, of honesty, of cheerfulness, playfulness, sympathy, love, kindness, joy, compassion, and friendship.
Life is short. Cherish the medal while you have them but when you give them away make sure they are the shiniest medal anyone has ever seen.
Post your pictures, you deserve to show off your medals!
