Hero Admiration as a Factor in Education
This chapter is wonderful! I think I say that about all the chapters...but I really mean it this time! :)
How true are the words, "all of us come into the world as little people who look up to bigger people?" That simple phrase means so much to me. I believe children admire their parents at the youngest of age. That's why parents are so influential on their children. Good and bad. Society as a whole is the way it is because of the heroes children are admiring. How true is that?
Ideas for giving children heroes to admire:
Literature/audio books/person relationships. I have often sought out "admirable people" for my children to admire and also arranged times for them to be together. My daughter is a violinist and artist. I have discovered a few women for her to admire and form a relationship with. Those relationships are valuable.
Compatible with Christianity. Isn't this an interesting point? I loved to be reminded of this: "people have come to obey the summons and give allegiance to the King of Kings"
Also, I have admired many elders in the faith as I've walked the Christian road.
Overall, I think this chapter is full of so much goodness! What did you think of "Hero Admiration as a Factor in Education"?
