An opportunity to grow

An opportunity to grow

 The art of wise parenting is to foster and empower children to deal with the dimension of growing and that is possible, if wise thinking is injected into children.

Life can be a process of growing or a process of aging. Aging means 'Adding years to your life'. Growing means 'Adding life to your years'. It is very important for parents to teach children to add life to their years. I observe very few people are really growing. To grow up is very different from growing old.
Growth also involves cashing on difficult situations.

Reflect on this story.
Two frogs were on a long journey and were hungry. They saw a huge pot, crept on it and found milk. They tried to drink the milk, but in the process slipped into the pot. One frog gave up and died after a while. The other frog had the belief that winners never quit and quitters never win. Hence, it continued its effort. In the process, slowly the milk turned into curd. Now it was relatively easy for the frog to take a leap and come out.
True growth involves overcoming obstacles and perceiving life not as a problem but as a challenge. What appears impossible to achieve at one point of time is possible if one were to put wise effort.

The greatest parents are those who do not lose their own child-like heart.
