Teaching Love And Compassion
The best lessons in life are not about good grades but being caring and affectionate individuals and the most important lesson parents should teach their kids is not from books but being loving, caring and compassionate human beings.

The more love we shower them with the more loving they become. Throughout the day there were innumerable times when I hugged and cuddled my daughter and she responded to it by laughing and giggling and slowly she started hugging me back. Hugging and cuddling makes them feel loved and cared.
Children learn what they see and hence to make them understand love and compassion we have to practice it in our lives every day. I taught my daughter to speak politely to everyone at all times. But there were times when she throwed tantrums and made me angry, but I did not show my anger as I knew she was watching me. I would make her sit on my lap and lovingly but firmly tell her how to behave and believe me it did work wonders and she started listening to me. Love always shows the way while getting angry makes them angry and irritated.
One of the best ways of teaching them love is getting them a pet. When my daughter turned two and got her a puppy and they started bonding instantly. They would run to each other whenever we came back home from an outing. The way she played and took care of him I could see love, care and compassion nourish in her.
Love and compassion are the best virtues of life and it's important to teach them to kids as soon as possible.
About Priyanka Rai
I am a dental surgeon, an army wife and a mother of a 30 months old daughter grooming her round the clock. Writing is my passion and when not writing I love to spend my time in the company of books and my daughter.My life changed completely two and a half years ago when my daughter was born. From being a working woman to a full-time mother was a tremendous transition but I cherish every moment of it. From the moment when I held her first till the time, I walked her to playschool every moment has been sheer bliss. I love talking to her, reading books to her and capturing her different moods and moments.
