The Parents Creed
By Rick Beneteau
I recognize and honor that being a parent is the most important role I will ever play in life, and that I have the opportunity to be the most influential teacher in the life of my child, so I affirm...
I will teach my child to be compassionate, that we as human beings are all connected.
I will teach my child to be tolerant, that we are all much more alike than different.
I will teach my child to love themselves unconditionally, to fully believe they are a special miracle in the world as this will be the only way they can truly love others.
I will encourage my child to explore their sense of wonder as curiosity is the core of real learning.
I will teach my child to be fair so they will learn justice.
I will praise my child each day for their self-worth will be the most valuable quality they will carry forward in life.
I will teach my child to praise others.
I will show my child kindness so that they may learn to be kind and considerate toward others.
I will teach my child to share freely so that they may learn that giving is the only way to receive.
I will teach my child to recognize and be grateful for the many blessings that enrich their life.
I will teach my child to laugh, dance and live joyously in every moment.
I will teach my child to work with enthusiasm and always be busy building a better version of himself.
I will demonstrate courage and strive to infuse fearlessness in my child in all they do.
I will teach my child to feel proud of all they are, and do, and be humble in that feeling.
I will prove to my child that respect is always earned.
I will teach my child to have reverence for, and take great care of, planet Earth and all its creatures.
I will teach my child to serve.
I will show my child that the Universe is biased towards goodness and the good will always outweigh the bad.
I will teach my child to forgive for in forgiveness lies magnificent freedom.
I will forgive myself for every failing I may have as a parent.
Above all, I will teach my child by my own example.
