I have an opinion on everything. My opinion, much like yours, is based on my own life experiences and what I have been willing to learn from others.  I do believe my opinions are right for me and my family and I have reasons for why I believe the things I do. I have a solid ground on which I stand. Rules and guidelines that govern how I live my life and how I raise my children.

When I share my opinion I am not saying I am right and you are wrong. I give my opinion and then I sit back and hear what others have to say. Even though some readers are cruel in their responses, I find many have some very helpful things to input. I am given the opportunity to rethink what I am saying and doing and/or to see if there might be more to any given subject than just my own narrow thoughts on it. I, like you, will only change my mind if someone can logically, lovingly articulate their opinion.

Despite what we believe we should not be casting stones at others who think differently than we do. When you start judging others just because they do things differently or think differently than you, you probably won’t have anyone take heed in your opinion. We all have opinions, but we should not have judgments. We should listen and understand that we are all made differently, think differently, therefore will handle things differently.

As long as parents truly love their children and are trying to be the best they can be for family, then who cares if their opinion is different. Let’s be kind and understand without being judgmental of someone else’s opinions. Is this possible?

Let’s learn from our young children and watch what they do when someone doesn’t agree with them or hurts them. They shrug their shoulders and move on. If they get hurt they don’t assume that child hurt them on purpose, instead, they pick themselves back up and continue playing. Not until we make a judgment about the situation do they even care. Let’s not influence our children into judgments, instead, let’s try to be more like them!
