Do we accept our children?
The first step for accepting your child is to accept yourself. Accepting our own shortcomings and mistakes helps us to be more accepting of our children.
Acceptance is always associated with mercy, looking mercifully at mistakes and slips, as well as abilities and talents.
The educator’s compassionate eye is the instinct he must follow in dealing with his children.
Mercy does not mean to be negligent or pampering, but it means looking at things with the eyes of the child, overstepping, and sometimes accepting his or her weaknesses, and focusing on increasing his strength points.
It is not a magical recipe, but it is instinct. There is no pretension or artificiality in it. The more you look at yourself with a merciful eye and accept your slips and mistakes, and treat yourself as a human soul, not an angelic creation (doing what is commanded) but rather a human being (who does the right thing, makes mistakes and repents as much as he can), the more You will be understanding, calm, compassionate, and accepting to your children.
This acceptance and compassion contribute to your children’s soul because they will accept themselves, treat themselves with integrity and respectfully without severe reprimand or fear of mistake.
