WHAT BELIEFS WOULD YOU WANT TO PASS ONTO YOUR CHILDREN OR GRANDCHILDREN?
I had a few rules in my home as my children were growing up, but I hope they pass along the only one that mattered: treat people the way you want to be treated.
They all bore witness to plenty of bad behaviour: bullying and gaslighting. The bright side of that is the same as the dark side, they saw first hand how not to behave rather than learning from some abstract (read: polite) metaphor.
To use the language of our transactional world, compassion and love have no downside. There is no weakness in being kind or empathetic. If anyone tries to criticize or shame you for being kind that is truly a reflection of their own issues.
I hope my children and grandchildren are kind in actions, words and thoughts.
