Moms have the most important job in the world. They hold the keys to a child’s childhood and greatly influence the lives of their adult children.
Our kids are growing up too fast. Our kids aren’t being allowed a childhood, thanks to the lack of parental involvement where the Internet is concerned and lack of honest information about what is being taught in school. Today, it’s TMI (too soon) and “over sexed ed” in elementary school. We are doing our children a great disservice by not allowing them to enjoy being innocent.
Whatever happened to tree forts and baby dolls? I miss seeing kids on Big Wheels and riding their bikes. Instead, I see them on their smart phones in line for movies designed to take just a little more of their childhood from them while pushing an agenda that’s anything but child-like.
I miss the days when kids could be little kids. I miss the pre-agenda education that I grew up with.
If you’re a mom, you have the most important job in the world. You get to allow your kids to experience the wonder of being a kid while you shape their hearts and minds in preparation for adulthood.
Sure, we can’t keep them from every damaging thing out there. But we can sure try to maintain their innocence so that they can enjoy the one time of life when the world seems like a nicer place than it really is.
I vote for tree forts and secret codes and disappearing ink. I vote for play kitchens and wooden blocks and bicycles. I vote for roller skating and old Disney movies. I vote for childhood.
