Words to Every Parent...

For You and Me…

There are little eyes upon you,
and they are watching night and day;
There are little ears that quickly take
in every word you say;
There are little hands all eager to do
everything that you do.
This little child is dreaming of
the day he'll be like you.

You're the little child's idol,
You're the wisest of the wise
Well, in his little mind about you,
No suspicions ever rise;
He believes in you sincerely,
holds all you say and do;
He will say and do in your way when
he's grown up to be like you.

There's a wide-eyed little child who
believes you're always right;
And his ears are always open and he
watches day and night;
You are setting an example
everyday in all you say and do
For the little child who's waiting
to grow up to be like you.

How important my child’s early years are…

My bundle of joy is exactly six months, two weeks and two days today. Most of the people around us have told my hubby and me that his early years include his first six years. With this, we have decided that I should stop working, stay at home and enjoy the moments with our little prince, baby Eieo.

Since I started to have him in my womb, my hubby and I have become more books’ enthusiasts. We used to be book lovers of our own literary genre. But now, we both enjoy collecting books on good parenting, raising a child and how-to be good parents and the likes. Well, learning from them has always been a fun-filled experience.

From these materials and advices of experts, we believe that we need to watch over our little Eieo because in these very early years, he begins to acquire moral and spiritual values. Here, he also starts to give meaning and concept to life.

Psychologists say that a child gains fifty percent of his knowledge by the age of three and seventy-five percent by age seven. The young child learns attitudes, responses and character traits – beginning to develop a positive or a negative image.

More so, we read from a book that we, parents are our baby’s first image or picture of God. Therefore, it is both a commitment and a responsibility to experience such wonderful blessings from Him.

Certainly, being a parent can be a tough yet a very rewarding and fulfilling experience.

Happy parenting, moms and dads!
