It’s easier to build strong children
than to repair broken men.
- Frederick Douglass
Peace education starts at home.
But what if we look at our own homes,
and we feel discouraged by what we see?
Conflicts may occur often between
parent and child,
Many of us need to
work on our inner self first,
to avoid passing on the hurts
to the next generation.
Let's not just tell our kids what's wrong.
Let's not assume the worst of their character.
They're not giving us a hard time.
They are having a hard time.
Gently guide them.
Give them the words,
the opportunities to practise.
Cheer them on.
When we know better,
we do better.
This peace CAN be a growing reality in our homes.
Rooting for you!
