They did their best. But it wasn’t enough. They promise they will do better but things continue to get worse everyday. They are sacrificing our future for their present benefits and luxury. Our climate is paying the price of their deadly acts. They call it development without seeing the climatic impact. Dear future parents, we are all part of this mess.

Dear future parents,we can see what we are passing through. As we plan to raise your child or children, remember that the highest and first education they will receive will be from our homes. The foundation we set for them in our homes will be what they will take to the outside world. Let’s be mindful of every acts we pose in their presence and also to them. Let’s train them in love and with love, teach them how to look after their environment and how to protect it. Let’s teach them how to have a human mind rather than a machine mind. Raise them up to grow and have the potential sense of responsibility so that at the right age, they will do what they are supposed to do.

It is true they will blame us for the present damage to our climate and present society at large. But we can remedy the situation by giving them hope, assuring them that things will get better. Let’s try to make them to understand that all human beings are equal regardless of their skin colour. Teach them how to respect human lives and the freedom of others. Train their subconscious mind and make them to understand the extraordinary power in it. The list can’t be exhausted. Above all, let’s give them love so that they can show love to themselves and to others.

I wish to myself and you all the best as we prepare our future homes.

  1. protecting the future is of great essence but living to protect it is more important! parents needs to understand that children are the true reflection of whom they are! So if they want to see themselves, all they have to do is to look at their kids and see for themselves! Parenting is a life time job! It never ends
