Always endeavor to train your children not cry because they want to make requests from you ….. If you keep saying you don’t want them to cry or you are disturbed whenever they cry, so you give them what they want all the time, then this is a mistake, its very wrong, know that this is a bad training and it will never favour you….. It always amazes me when a child cries to collect something important , knowing fully well that they will destroy it and yet you hand it over to them…… Don’t be surprised when he cries even at the age of 10 just because he wants something which you are not capable of….
That’s why I’m not in support of the habit of giving children Money, once they are used to it, they will always cry to ask for it and this isn’t helping their future or the contentment you want to build in them…..
When we were small and someone gave us 5 naira or 10 naira, we mustn’t spend it….. We will make sure we give it to our mum and she won’t give it back to us, she prefers to have those biscuit/sweet at home to compensate us but she hardly gives money to children….that’s even when we have the opportunity of having 10 naira, we can keep it for a week without spending it, but nowadays you will be surprised seeing a child of 3 years spending 100 naira anyhow …… And he/she requests for it like that almost everytime ….. This behaviour may lead to destruction if care is not taken
May Allah make our children the coolness of our eyes
