Just when I wanted to share on the contents we should start enriching our children with, @ifeadura Beat me to it, please read about. I'll share mine soon😁😁 #Repost @ife_adura (@get_repost)
I recently downloaded Kids Praise and Donut Repair Club videos for my daughter and a colleague asked why I couldn't go for something more recent and contemporary. Of course, my daughter watches cartoons like Doc McStuffins and PJ Masks on DSTV but I don't think that's enough for me. I want her to have a good spiritual background and you may think its too early at 10 months but trust me, no time is too early or to late for us to teach our children about Jesus Christ. I grew up listening to Donut man and the Donut Repair Club and till date, I still remember that life ''without Jesus is like a Donut, 'cause there is a hole in the middle of my heart''. The songs from the various episodes helped me, consciously and unconsciously and whether I want to accept it or not, left a lasting mark in my life. Thank God for Sunday School teachers in Children class. They are doing a great job with children in church (all glory to God) I remember Mrs Lawal (I dont know where she is now), Aunty Ranti and Brother Ezekiel, who in their different ways contributed to my spiritual growth.
As parents, it is our duties to monitor what our children are exposed to because they learn more from T.V and Internet than they learn at home. It is even worse now that Nigerian music has lost it in terms of lyrical and video content. While watching one of the episodes of kids praise with my daughter, some of the songs kept assuring me of God's love and I was encouraged. I had some issues roaming about in my mind and some of those songs ministered to me. I have been singing ''rejoice in the Lord'' for days. I want my daughter to grow up thirsty for God, and even though true salvation comes God, her father and I will try our best as parents to bring her up in the way of the Lord. That's the best gift we can give her.
