My gift to you

"These words of Lao Tse stay in my mind: “Kindness in words creates confidence; kindness in thinking creates profoundness; kindness in giving creates love.” It is this very kindness that we must spread and inculcate. We, as parents, are in a vantage position to show this kindness in the home – our child’s first school and we, his or her first teachers.

It is important that we develop our child in the four dimensions of character building – physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual. The nation is in dire need of strong young minds, but it needs even more desperately, great parents to nurture great kids.

My message to you, the fathers and mothers of today, is, “Youth comes but once. Help your children live it well. And love. Love God. Love yourself, and love your family and friends.”
