There's a saying which goes something like this:

"Bread cast on the waters comes back to you. The good deed you do today may benefit you or someone you love at the least expected time.  If you never see the deed again at least you will have made the world a better place - And, after all, isn't that what life is all about? "

This morning received a message shared by a friend in one of our group chat.  This I noticed was taken from this link   'open heavens daily devotional' written by Pastor E A Adeboye.  

Growing up in the era when most parents were illiterate,  these messages could not be more true... hehehe..


Years back, *poor illiterate  parents* produced
🔹 Scientists,
🔹 Accountants,
🔹 Lawyers,
🔹 Architects,
🔹 Professors,  whom I will refer to as *Group 'A'*.

These *Group 'A'* Children struggled on their own after Primary 6 or Grade 12, to become notable personalities.

Most of them
👉🏾trekked to school *barefooted*
👉🏾 went to farms
👉🏾fetched water and firewood
👉🏾cared for domesticated animals
👉🏾did some work including trading after school to survive.

Now Group 'A' , who have now become Parents themselves are *producing  Group 'B'  Children*

These Group B children are:

🔹 helped in their homeworks or home assignments from nursery school through secondary schools to higher institutions.
 🔹chauffeur driven to very expensive schools or are sent abroad to study. 
🔹they can watch movies from morning till dawn after school.
🔹 they are treated like baby kings and queens.
🔹they don't do any household chores.
🔹Food is put on the table for them,
🔹their plates are removed and washed by parents or house maids.
🔹They are given expensive cars and clothes,
🔹not forgetting *big pocket monies to be wasted* !!!.
🔹Their parents help them in doing their assignments.

🤔 In spite of all these, only few can *speak* or *write* correctly. 😏

🤔Group 'A' Parents  cared for their own *parents* and *children*,
Group 'B', their Children are still *struggling to find their feet at age 30+*.‼

🤔They find it difficult to do things on their own because they are used to being helped to think and doing things by Group 'A'.

So they can't help themselves, their parents or the society.


😴 *Where do you belong*

🏮Reduce the pampering and the unnecessary help you offer your children.

🏮 Let your children *grow in wisdom, intelligence and strength*.

🏮Let them face the truth and the realities of life. Teach them to grow  to become *independent adults.*

Teach them to :-
👉🏾fear God,
👉🏾respect  others and
👉🏾 develop confidence in themselves.

🤔Parents, discipline your children to become disciplined adults, *useful* and not *useless.*

Praying these kids one day will grow up to be Group A adults.
