We have to teach kids that nobody but them is responsible for their lives – that’s what I learned today 🙂
It’s 6: 49 PM on day 387 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself yoghurt for breakfast, prepare and publish my Disability of the Day feature, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign –no luck – feed myself rice and curry for lunch, exercise for a few minutes –my hamstrings were SO tight – and watch TV.
Today I said to my brother I challenge you to do fifty push-ups – he’s overweight according to his paediatrician – to which he responded if I accept your challenge will you let me use the laptop I thought about it for a minute and said no I won’t bribe you to take care of your body in that moment I realized that that’s where most parents go wrong they beg and plead with their kids to do their homework, exercise, ect when they should be trying to make them understand that if they don’t do what their supposed to do they are the ones who will pay in the end. Are you teaching your kids that they and only they are responsible for the outcome of their lives?
Are we connecting on Twitter? If not, say hi at http://twitter.com/Nisha360
If you’ve given to my cause or you can’t give now, please help me by sharing my cause with others. You can tweet about it like my friend Stan Faryna. This is the tweet he uses: @Nisha360 is a brave, smart young woman trying to make a better world for us all. Please help her do an amazing thing. http://bit.ly/hC7vOu
Stan’s very sweet for saying so, but feel free to write what reflects you best.
Thanks to all my friends out there who are helping me make my dream come true: to make a better world for all of us!
