Childhood – Blog No. 56

childhood

Childhood is for children. That means it is a time of innocence. Every child has innocence. Should you be responsible for taking the innocent wonder out of the life-experience of a child, you will have a lot to answer for when that child becomes an adult. It is not easy to ensure that a childhood is untainted in this day and age, but it is possible.

Childhood is short for most children these days, that is why it is important to cherish the idea of it. Again I will say it, if you cannot offer a child a happy childhood, why have one? That kind of a betrayal is sacrilege. Children are all born with hope. Love, and innocence too. If you choose to damage these faculties in a child, you can safely consider yourself a cruel person.

There are those parents that will live vicariously through their children, and this, too, tampers with the early experience that children should be having. Children need guidance, they do not need their parents to make their choices for them. Childhood is a time for exploration, for children to learn how to make sense of the world they have been born into. An adult is not able to make up a child’s mind.

  1. I write stories about my path for education beginning in early childhood and publish book, Raise the Flag: Lean Thy Arms, about a harder road for experience and I pay with blood, bruises, black eyes, broken teeth, and a pound of flesh when cops beat me senselessly and without cause for arrest and they try to bury me in prison to cover up like they do for pedophile priests, but I am not guilty.
