In India, Children’s Day is celebrated on 14th November – the birthday of the first Prime Minister of independent India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. The idea behind Children’s day is to honor children, and emphasize the importance of giving love and affection to children, who are the bright future of India.
Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan has given great insights on how to deal with kids, how to tackle the younger generation and how to mould them towards productivity and creativity. It is with love and affection that the best qualities in children can be nurtured. Only then, we can have a harmonious equation with kids around us. And the kids will also have positive attitude in life.
As Dada Bhagwan says, the basic step to start on this is to first improve ourselves – “Parents themselves should develop moral values that result in a loving family environment. The love from parents should be such that their children would not want to leave them. If you want to improve your child, the responsibility lies with you. You are duty-bound to your child. Children will learn whatever they see in you. Only when the parents are morally upright, do their children also become morally upright."
Let this Children’s Day also be a day for parents and guardians – where we resolve to improve ourselves such that our kids are naturally inspired to inculcate values from us.
