Kids matter! Do you think your kids matter? Do you think showing them they are valuable matters? I do! I really, really do! I would like to present you with one, just one way we can show our kids they matter.
But first a little background: Too often I see parents walking at an adults pace with a small child trying to keep up. Some are holding their parent’s hand, some trying to keep up from behind…and some are running to keep up, their little legs going as fast as they can. It saddens me every time!
Geez parents pay attention to your child. Walk at their pace, next to them. Pay attention to their little legs. If you are in a hurry then pick them up and go, but please don’t drag them along (figuratively speaking).
I can remember carrying two small kids in my arms at times – my precious children who God trusted me with. We only have small children for a very short time. Let’s treat them like they matter…
Because kids matter.
