Nurturing the Intelligence and Confidence of Children

Updated: Sep 17, 2023

Be extremely patient and attentive with children. Avoid uttering anything that could hinder the development of their intelligence. Sooner or later, the child will begin to question things on their own.

At that point, we should refrain from providing them with pre-fabricated answers. Instead, we should offer them situations and challenges that refine their intelligence and prompt deeper inquiries.

Unfortunately, this is often discouraged.

Parents and society, in general, fear the idea of children remaining free thinkers, as they might not conform to the crowd.

What happens when they develop their intelligence independently? They become uncontrollable.

In our current society, control is a priority, as it seeks to possess our souls. We must not undermine a child's self-confidence or the inner light they possess. We should continuously nurture their self-trust. If a child has confidence in themselves, they become unmanageable, unafraid, and independent.

They won't become mere imitators but authentic individuals, vibrant with life. They can be true kings and queens, not beggars or slaves. What we truly need are real individuals, not mere imitations or slaves. Let's support children in building their self-confidence, help them embrace freedom, intelligence, and compassion. Let's assist them in growing into responsible individuals who can contribute to creating a better future."
