Parents Creed…

I’ve been meaning to write about this… but I’m a huge procrastinator.I received a lot of pressies this year for my birthday, and unlike the yesteryears, this year’s birthday wasn’t painful or lonely at all. This year, I’m remembered, and I feel so blessed. I wanted to write about what I’ve received, but first, let me share what could be the most meaningful gift among the things I’ve received.

Someone very special gave me this for my birthday earlier this month. It’s a little card, with writings on it. Initially, I wanted to snap the picture of the card and put it here, but seeing how bad the quality of camera is, it won’t do the beauty of the card any justice, and I think it’s best if I just copy the writings over here:

Parents Creed

If a child lives with criticism,
he learns to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility,
he learns to fight.
If a child lives with ridicule,
he learns to be shy.
If a child lives with shame,
he learns to feel guilty.
If a child lives with tolerance,
he learns to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement,
he learns confidence.
If a child lives with praise,
he learns to appreciate.
If a child lives with fairness,
he learns justice.
If a child lives with security,
he learns to have faith.
If a child lives with approval,
he learns to like himself.
If a child lives with
acceptance and friendship,
he learns to find Love in the world.


Cleffairy: Thank you, Cikgu, for being so thoughtful. 😀 This means a lot to me, and I’ll remember this for as long as I can.

ps: Your other pressie… the sexy garment… lol… I used it when I paint, instead of cooking. 😀 Yeah, I do paint. *roll eyes*

    So , so true Dear Fairy. I cringe whenever I see those little spoilt brats abusing the maids, cursing and swearing. Certainly reflects badly on the people who brought them up.

      It’s all in the upbringing, I suppose. I’m like my father… LOL… I have mind of my own, and thank God I don’t have a daughter, i daresay she’d be really rebellious.

    Like father like son ; like mother like daughter?? – It’s true the blueprints of us are imprint on the child – whether good or bad influnce

    Not really, depends on who brought the kids up…some were brought up by grandparents or foster parents… hence, their attitude are not the same as their biological parents.
