CHILDRENS SERIES OVERVIEW
is a corner-stone in character, and if it be not firmly
laid in youth, there will ever after be a
weak spot in the foundation.”
-- J. Davis
Youth are our future not only for our country but for western
civilization. We are in the cycle of extremes with the 1960’s
generation pushing aside all what grandmother tried to teach us
and have replaced it with social humanism allowing the individual
to be and act according to his own dictates. Any moral code of
ethics that even date back to ancient Egyptian times has been replaced
with one’s freedom to express his uniqueness.
Lacking a moral compass is like a rudderless sailboat shifting
with the wind. When the fog and mist subsides one finds himself
circulating aimlessly. Reaching goals, becoming a success in life
will only be a temporary condition if the foundation is not properly
formed. We see this today with our youth who are not prepared to
live within our changing world. They have not been able to develop
any sense of social consciousness built on respect and decency
of the human being. Many remind us of those tawdry boys from Lord
of the Flies struggling to survive in a world of their making.
Manners matter and we are seeing college graduates enrolling in
etiquette classes in record numbers for academia as well as parents
themselves lacked this knowledge. Being a genius in your field
of study is not a guarantee of success in the marketplace. Communication
skills and basic decent human courtesies are paramount for success.
These attributes and skills need to be taught to our children and
with practice they will become second nature to them.
Manners build confidence and respect for others. Respect fosters
positive social interaction. Kindness is in, rude behavior is out.
The basic value of every child whether they are a member of a gang
or the new student to the class, wants to be respected and accepted.
Character based on moral principles of decency and respect is that
rudder that will provide direction for the child and build a secure
foundation that will weather any storm
