Words of Wisdom – Positive and inspiring quotes every parent must share with children.
Have you ever wondered how few positive quotes and words fill us with energy and good vibes? I always had a thing for good quotes and like using them in my writing and conversation. Quotes which touch our right chord and teach us a lesson or two. Or spark a thought process, to introspect.
If you are following me on social media channels, you might have seen few good positive quotes in the feed. I love sharing the ones I truly abide by or believe in. Positivity is a state of mind and if few lines can bring new hope and aspiration in life; why not refer to it?
During conversations when Dad-in-law gets candid he often shares situation based idioms/ quotes with the meaning intact. His favorites are from ‘Bhagavad Gita‘ and ‘Kabir Das Dohe‘. Some of these words are very inspiring and full of motivation. I use and explain few easier ones with daughter, to explain the lifecycle of learning.
Words of Wisdom – for Children
Sharing here few words of wisdom, every parent should share with the children.
1. Sant Kabir Das Dohe (couplets) –
बडा हुआ तो क्या हुआ जैसे पेड़ खजूर।
पंथी को छाया नही फल लागे अति दूर ॥
Bada Hua Toh Kya Hua, Jaise Ped Khajoor I Panthi Ko Chaya Nahi Fal Lage Aati Door II
Translation – ‘Being rich or famous is of no use if you cannot help others‘. He quotes an example of the tall Palm tree. Despite being such a tall tree, it’s of no use for travelers, as neither it could provide shelter from the sun, nor the fruit is reachable.
Explaining these words of wisdom, we should also quote real-life examples so that children could relate to it. Compassion and empathy are basic human behavioral traits, emphasis on lessons for life.
2. Mistakes are proof that you are Trying
Explain to them what really mistakes mean, it means that you are trying. Winning or losing is not important, trying to accomplish a task is crucial. Encourage them if they need your support, and stress on ‘keep trying until you win’. Life brings good news for those who try, even God does not help those who do not try.
I explained daughter that God keeps a close watch on everyone, and help only those who try to complete the work. Aim at the target, and give it a try.
3. Believe you can and you are halfway there
Believe in yourself and your abilities. If we doubt our abilities, nothing can bring us happiness and success. Hurdles and issues are mind games, with the right attitude and right abilities everything is possible.
There is nothing impossible if we truly wish to achieve something. Teach kids to believe in themselves and trust their abilities.
Words of wisdom and inspirational quotes motivate us, provide guidance and a new perspective to look at things. I often take shelter with few good quotes and words when in search of push, do you believe in ‘quotes’? If yes, do share your favorite one with me in the comments below. I am leaving one of my favorite for you –
“Impossible is Not a FACT; it’s just an OPINION” – by Mohammad Ali.
