When my grandchildren come to visit we love having deep conversations together. We never get tired or bored of these dialogues. Sometimes my grandchildren refuse to watch cartoons, play, or draw, in order to talk about something in a philosophical way. There is never a shortage of topics for us because there is so much I would like to share with them both. For example, last Saturday, we have been discussing different merits of human beings, such as courage, cowardliness, dignity, pride, neatness, and others.
My grandkids were especially interested in the integrity. I explained to them my understanding of integrity. A person with integrity is not able to act in a destructive manner, and is not capable of hurting anyone. We had a long discussion about which action would be considered constructive and not destructive. Curiously, we came to the conclusion that to be a pizza-deliverer would not be a very constructive thing to do, because pizza is not a nutritious kind of food. In order to be constructive, one would have to deliver any kind of nutritious food, that’s all. Then we were trying to imagine the world where all people had integrity.
Today I was happy to hear from my son that my grandson shared his thoughts about integrity at school today. The teacher asked what are the most important qualities of the human. My grandson said, “integrity!” and was able to explain what it meant. Both the teacher and his classmates were very interested to discuss this subject.
I believe it is vital to teach our children to observe, to think critically, and to be healthy, especially in today’s world when so much is happening. I would like to emphasize that todays children will be our tomorrow’s leaders. If you’d like to teach your children to be healthy, consider buying our beautiful children books for them.
