THE BEST ADVICE EVER!!!

I remember my yordly days in high school when I thought i knew everything and took advises with a pinch of salt. high school was a time that loving a member of staff was not a popular thing to do, especially in the case of Everybody loving someone who did not spare the rod; I mean someone who will wipe your behind clean with a cane, and yet we all loved him. and I mean Really Loved him. He was the school Principal.
He is nothing like the hollywood high school principal. This was a man that smiled at you and makes you loved, you'll only see a frown on him when it was really necessary and even then you'll be glad he scolded you. His good nature was only a little of the goodness in him, his greatest asset was the wisdom he impacted on us and the amazing way he delivered this advise to us. though by nature teenagers don't want nobody advicing them over and over again, though it is not popular to see teenagers yelling an instuction with all enthusiasm day after day, yet that was exactly what happened when this man stood before us.
His Advise to us:
"Always do the Right Thing, At the Right Time, In the Right Place."
Please note, not all good thing are the right thing. Giving your kids ALL they ask for is a good thing; it shows you love them right? Wrong. Giving them what they need is different from giving them what they want. they Need Love, they Need clothes, they Need food, they need shelter and many important things. a child that has just finished watching Rambo would Want a gun and that is something you wont give your child if you are a good parent.
If you can always ask yourself what is the right thing for me to do at this time in this place, then you would definitely make a lot more progress in life.

  3. So true, it's about getting the balance right in the area of knowing what to provide for your kids and when. There's also no harm done if they request something and you allow it, as children should have the freedom to ask parents too, and from time to time it's good to give them a nice treat.
    It's good to do the right thing, at the right time and place, but you have to be able to also discern that moment, at times.
