All of us have moments in our lives that test our courage. Taking children into a house with a white carpet is one of them. So said Erma Bombeck, the American columnist, who wrote several successful books and who is known for her descriptions of suburban life through her newspaper column.
Kids are delightful alright but when you have your own… you tend to get jaded, considering that you have so much more to do in raising them. God forbid, they turn out to be like William, a popular series of short stories on this rascal that is a must-read, and written by one of my favorite British authors, Richmal Crompton.
Yes, raising them well includes providing food, clothing, shelter, an education and so on and so forth… and even then, some parents get it completely wrong for no fault of theirs.
Nourishment for Kids – Points to Ponder Over
A parent's focus is almost always to provide nourishment for their children but this is not only in the sense of providing nutritious food.
It's a tough world that we live in – where we have to be at our best, as we grow up. There's a lot of emphasis on competition and success right from the time a child is born – and while that's annoying, it is probably worth it in the long run.
Personally speaking, it's probably fair to view nourishment much like the practice of most gardeners who even talk to the plants, in order help them grow. And while children deserve all the attention that they get, where the focus should be at, is on the parents, and how they should raise their children.
Yes, it's important that parents should be supported more than ever so that they can raise their children in the best way possible. Why is this important?
Because they're the future of the country, and steps taken by parents when their children were barely toddlers can have a lasting positive impact when the kids have reached adulthood. Take celiac children , for example.
And even though these thoughts are more about teaching their children about values, it won't register if they're malnourished in the physical sense.
And this is probably why finding the right healthy recipes for kids is the first things that you must do before moving on to the tougher tasks in raising a child. Because eating right is just right, and should become a habit from a young age.
