Childhood is the most beautiful word for everyone’s mind and heart. A person’s inner happiness in the latter age depends upon the childhood memories and how they were spent. I just want to share some important things about childhood and children’s nature of mind. With my limited resources I want to depict those things through my paintings.
Childhood is a time that we look back on with fondness for the simple joys of life and freedom from responsibilities. But when we look at it close enough, are children really free! Or are they burdened by the expectations of the adults around them? Do we really have much to teach our children, or is there more we can learn from them?
We as parents if we are truly concerned about our children, we must raise our children in such a way that the child will never have any need for the parent. The process of loving should always be liberating, not entangling. So when children are born, the best thing is to allow them to look around, to spend time with nature and by themselves. We should create an atmosphere of love and support. Allow them to grow, allow their intelligence to grow and help them look at life on their own terms, as human beings – not identified with the family background, wealth, or anything else. Just helping them to look at life as human beings is very essential for their well being and also that of the world.
Home should not be a place for us to impose our culture, ideas and morals upon our children. It should instead be a supportive atmosphere. If children feel most comfortable at home, they will naturally try to spend more time there than outside. Right now, outside world may feel like a more comfortable place for them than being at home because of the impositions and restrictions they face. So, if that discomfort is absent, they will feel good at home. This does not mean that they are not going to be exposed to the hard realities of the world. They will be, and these realities will influence our children in some way or the other. But always, parents encouraging their children to think for themselves, to use their own intelligence to see what is best, are the greatest insurance for a child to grow up well.
Most adults assume that as soon as a child is born, it is time to become teachers. When a child enters our house, it is not the time to become a teacher; it is time to learn from them. The only thing that you can teach your child – which you have to, to some extent – is how to survive. But a child knows more about life itself, experientially. An adult is capable of all kinds of suffering – imagined suffering. A child has still not gone to that. So it is time you learn life from them, not the other way around.
When we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about- Angela Schwindt
