Leave those Kids Alone
If you were a small child you wouldn't want your mother or father towering over you
yelling and screaming til their face turned blue.
And now another precious child begins to cry
he wanted love now he wants to die.
I believe each time you make a child's tears flow
that child's love for you will cease to flow.
Think twice before you put your children down.
Criticism only causes frowns
and angry words tear self esteem down.
Please don't do this to your child
Love and nourish them and help them to laugh and smile.
I know that God did not place parents here to punish kids with pain and fear.
If God treated you this way
soon you'd grow to hate each passing day
and your love for life would ebb away.
Surely someday you will pay the price
if you treat a kid less than nice.
For anyone that has ever mentally, emotionally, sexually, or physically hurt a kid
take these words to heart I give.
Just how long will you pretend you do not know
that criticism and physical punishment have to go.
Hey...how would you like it if God reached down and hit you right on the top of your mean ol head.
And could you stand up while Mike Tyson punched you til you were almost dead.
No way Fred...
So do me a favor and keep your hands off the kids.
This could be the most important choice you've ever known.
Peace will come into your heart when you leave those kids alone.
And the place that was a dark and dreary house
will transform into a lovely happy home.
This is my best advice....
Treat your children fair and nice
and they'll grow to love you thruout
the rest of their life.
