Our busy schedules and fast-paced routines in today’s highly competitive world sometimes leave us with little time for our children. The irony is that we keep thinking that all of this haste, hurry and worry is for the betterment of our children. We think that their life will be easier when they grow up if we work really hard for them now.

 We forget that children will always be deeply affected by what they have seen being done by their parents. If you never gave importance to family or to relaxation, your children will never learn how to do it. If you walk so fast in life that they can’t even catch-up with you, they will grow up to think that it is correct and they will do the same. All our plans to make their life easier will be foiled.

 So give some thought to how you’re spending your life and how your kids are watching you live. The following poem on www.fathers.net tries to make us realize the truth about this fact:

 “Walk a little slower, Daddy”,
Said a little child so small.
“I’m following in your footsteps,
And I don’t want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast,
Sometimes they’re hard to see;
So walk a little slower, Daddy,
For you are leading me.

Someday when I’m all grown up,
You’re what I want to be;
Then I will have a little child
Who’ll want to follow me.

And I would want to lead just right,
And know that I was true;
So, walk a little slower, Daddy,
For I must follow you.”
