My son is so excited for this year 2017. He has so many plans:

  1. To be a better brother
  2. To be more obedient to the elderly
  3. To play and have fun
  4. To finish his homeschool curriculum

While saying this, he asked me as to why is it always hard to obey and do better.

I honestly don’t know how to explain to a kid why it’s hard to obey and be better but I tried by telling him this:

“It is hard to do better and obey because we are used to our comfort, doing what’s right and obeying takes courage, discipline, and commitment. Courage is like being strong and standing up for yourself knowing that you are on the good side. Discipline is doing the good things you are supposed to do even if you are tired and even if you don’t want to do it. Commitment is giving your 100 percent to what you’re doing, not 90 percent but 100 percent. Just like when you tell me, you like a certain toy 100 percent.”

Son: that is really hard, sometimes my body and mind wants me to do wrong even if I know its wrong. I can’t control it.

I: I know that’s why you have to practice while you are a kid so that it is easy when you grow up. When you’re a grown up, there are so many rules and obeying that you need to follow.

Son: I’m glad I’m not a grown up yet, so many things to think about. Oh, as long as the earth continues to rotate, I can’t stop growing up. Soon its gonna be 2018 then 2019 then 2020… Oh no.

    Not related to the post, but I wanted some advice , and I’d be really grateful if you could help me out.
    I’ve become a contributor for Millionaire Digest and I’ve written two posts and given them for review but neither of them have been published yet. I emailed the CEO guy, but he didn’t respond, so I’m in a bit of a pickle as to what I should do? Since you’re apparently with Millionaires Digest, could you help me out please? I’d like to if my posts would be published, and how long the process usually takes.

    Smart kid. He thinks like that already? Who knows what he’s going to speculate about in the future.

    I like the way the kid thinks, I also some time hope how I could have remained a kid , if at all I had the chance. Wishful thinking ??.
    I would love to remain one, then be a grown up following rules always. I hope it would be easier to make teenage kid understand about rules, when he/she does not want to follow.
