Society ~vs~ Self-Respect

Did you know that statistics read there are 5% of leaders in every high school and the other 95% of students are followers who are over-friendly, co-dependent and are bad listeners to good advice.  These same people major in being disrespectful and minor in self-respect due to lack of home training and faulty thinking.

If you will disrespect your mother you will disrespect anyone. Whenever these students are in public, teachers and the police can see you coming a mile away. Practicing self-respect should be a priority at home and carry over into social relationships amongst peers.

Self-Respect

This world has enough crime and fools who destroy society based on bad home training and negative influences from the environment. Let’s reduce unhealthy social interaction by making a difference through the art of self-respect. The respect you give yourself will be given back to you by others through honor and admiration. And the respect you show others will grow into an arm of gratitude and an act of kindness expressed back to you as your reward of respect towards humanity.

 Family Phot Respect

Self-Respect takes time and is not learned over night.  But always remember that you give others the advantage to share a quality life with you whenever you make them feel respected.

Self-Respect is the ability to implement boundaries and discipline in your life that help you tell others how much you respect yourself. But respect for others is an example of how much you care about other people.

Whatever you didn’t learn or gain during elementary and high school, you will need as an adult. Our children must take advantage of the support beams they have growing up. Those same people who impact your life may not be present when you become an adult.

Parents, teachers and neighbors along with a community of others have your best interest at hand growing up. Within this community are opportunities to learn self-respect and respect for others.

Quote: The lessons unlearned as a child will become problems returned as an adult.

In other words, whatever you were supposed to learn as a child you may need as an adult. Those are times we make bad decisions and are confused or indecisive about how to treat yourself and other people.

Indecisive

We have to learn these things early on in life so that we live productive lives as adults being kind to our family and community.

Self-Respect & respect for others has a unique way of connecting us to love and unity we all need every day in our lives. God bless!

Change America By Helping Future Generations

With all the shootings and violence around the world. I pray that our nation and community becomes safe again. Every day I’m mentoring or helping some parent and their children with the day to day struggles of peer pressure and self-development.
Statistics: Did you know that 1 out 2 boys got into a fight at school in 2013 and at least 35% fought 3 to 4 times. And 1 out of every 4 girls fought last year due to social conflict and quarrels over boys.

In this season I would like to be friends with positive people and a friend of God. I have never seen him before. But when good people do great things it’s a sign that he exists.
We have to take our kids back! If this audience doesn’t have any children or if their kids are all grown up? Let’s remember those parents who are still raising theirs.

Pray for our children
I pray parents and children become better examples in public places. Also, parents lead our communities with integrity in front of those children who need us most. I’m not saying be a role model, I’m only saying know your role on earth towards kids who need our guidance best.

As I lead the next generation in my community down the road of excellence. I pray that our eyes are open and we are able to hold hands with great people like you who see a clear vision for creating a generation of road scholars and good hearted individuals that provide our communities a brighter future within our nation.

Single Parents are things wearing you down?

While being a single parent, I raised my children full-time, worked full-time, enrolled in college, did volunteer work for a charity organization and helped out at church. Oh, of course, don’t forget about pay all the bills. I cut that schedule in half because it was wearing me out. After raising my children and see them graduate from college, “I thought my work on earth had ended”. I was tired and ready to take a permanent nap.

 Graduation

Since, my ex-wife didn’t help me; I realized early on that I was on my own. That was painful but I managed to handle my responsibilities and move on with my children to raise.  She only showed me what she weren’t willing to do like raise kids. Her leaving us made it possible for me to raise my children in peace and with fewer distractions.

Read More

Also, I could read books and learn how to help my children without her always complaining about me going about things based on education and spiritual intuition. It also eliminated unnecessary arguments and helped me with my mission to  raise healthy children. I’m not saying marriage is bad. I’m only saying have the right partner. And be willing to do your part as single-parent.

 Single Parent Juggle

Obviously it’s not healthy to take on too much and try to juggle more than you can handle. It’s wise to ask for the help you need. My family was good for babysitting when my children were small. But as they reached 8 and 9, I took my children everywhere I went. My alone time was after the children had gone to sleep.

Children and family members must be sensitive of your needs and respect you as a single parent because there are some drawback moments that put you on edge.

My friends never knew how on earth I seem to manage all the things I did. As much as I love my children. I didn’t realize how much raising kids had aged me and became somewhat uncomfortable at times.

Aging

The more you learn and the smarter you become. You will find ways to slow down aging. The key is to avoid things that create stress and depression from occurring.

Read all you can and listen to what children are saying. Also, listen for what they don’t say. You have to read between the lines to understand how to communicate well with them. This way you can have peace of mind and prevent unnecessary stress.

You deserve to live long and strong while raising your children. Just because you are a single parent doesn’t mean you need a partner. You just need to be wise and know your boundaries brothers and sisters. And don’t allow kids or people to wear you out and use you. People don’t know how you really feel behind the hard work and smile.

Live A Little

Therefore, every chance you get, spend quality time with yourself and treat yourself to a great time out on the town alone or with someone you enjoy. Before you know it they will be gone unto another life with the person they call important. Meanwhile, have balance and enjoy what you call important.Spend Time Having Fun

God bless you so keep reading and listening to your intuition.

Don’t Take It Out On Children!

DON’T COME HOME ANGRY AND TAKE IT OUT ON YOUR CHILDREN:

dont take it out

No matter how funny your money is or who made you mad at work. You must promise not to take it out on your family.

A Few Tips:

  • Go to the gym and exercise
  • Explain to your children you need some temporary space
  • Never whoop kids while angry

NOTE: Have a cooling down period. Get it together before you walk in the door. Breathe and think about how you want your evening to end. Then pursue best you know how to be a good parent. But try to have self-control at all times.
