Parents Creed
If a child lives with criticism,
He learns to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility,
He learns to figh.
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.

Children are the greatest miracles in our lives.
They are gifts from God. How we nurture and mold them
is our own contribution to humanity.

Let's pray for all the parents in the world.
May God bless them and guide them to
be the best role models, educators, coaches,
cheerleaders, admirers and avid supporters
of their children.
May they have the grace to provide a loving environment
(following the footsteps of Mary and Joseph)
to enable their children reach their fullest potential...
to be the best that they can be,
and in the process are able to serve others,
their community, their nation,
and God.
This we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
Our son, Charles, won the card bearing the picture of the Holy Family
and the Parents Creed (above) at his Music class
in Our Lady of Grace School (Castro Valley, CA).
He wanted us to share it in this blog, thus this post.
We hope you enjoy it.
