In the light of current events, I am certain of one thing: we need heroes. As parents, we cannot allow fear to rule our lives; on the contrary, we should prepare our children to act nobly and to do the right thing in unusual circumstances, because one thing is certain: we live in uncertain times. This summer, there are a few important activities you can do to begin your child’s hero education.
- 1. Read aloud great adventures of heroes. The Hobbit and the Narnia series are great family reading choices for summer; read them aloud. Give your children stories so that they will remember the heroes’ great and wondrous deeds so that these stories stay in their hearts and souls and are recalled in moments when courage is needed. These stories provide good hero role models, and they should inspire us to undertake great and wondrous things so that stories may be told about us someday.
