Children are the best gift of God but sometimes they need gifts as well. Rabindranath Tagore said in his writings, “Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of man.” Man makes crime, man makes war and man kills man too but children are the robust example in the earth that he does not forget to love. We still prefer not give up all our hopes for the life because of our child, the messenger of innocence, the angel sent by God. We celebrate Children’s Day every year to make ourselves remember about these things.
This particular day is celebrated on different dates in different countries. In India we use to celebrate our Children’s Day on 14th November which is actually the birthday of Pundit Shri Jawaharlal Nehru who became the first prime minister of India after the independence. He was considered as the perfect blend of Indian spiritual philosophy and Western scientific and analytical thoughts. He brought various child rights and development projects into action and also spread his sterling concern about them to build the future India, dream India. The famous US president John F. Kennedy also understood the necessity of the perfect bringing up for any child for the sake of building up a better nation for the future and he said, “Children are the world's most valuable resource and its best hope for the future.”
Making a child happy is hard but if you can really impress him or her you would be much happier and if you really think in this way here is the day when you can give all your efforts. Child Psychologists always suggest all the parents to avoid indulging the children every time in all their demands and caprices. According to them, agreeing in all the matters asked by the children and fulfilling all their demands increase their greed and leads them to greenness.Now you may be wondering about the solutions and thinking of asking me that in which way you can show your love to them. Yes, I have a suggestion which is cost effective and psychologically correct at the same time i.e. why don’t you pick some particular days in a year to offer your child the best gift within your affordability? It will never allow your child to expect things unnecessary and limitless. After the birthday of your child this particular day can be the second best option for you to offer your child the ‘special gift’.
Starting from the best comic book in the town to the best video game can be counted among the best gifts for this particular day. But before buying anything you need to be well aware of your child’s desires and demands. If your child likes to play outdoor games, no reason to gift him or her large set of indoor games. If your child likes read comic books of Tintin, Aesterix, Phantoms or Mandrakes there is no reason in gifting him or her gospel audio CDs.The best idea is to know your child well before offering him or her anything as gift. But one thing I can be always sure of that never fails when you are gifting it to a child i.e. Chocolates which can comes up with cakes, pastries, cookies or even ice creams.
The scene is pretty different for those parents who had to send their children to some other places for studying or maybe they themselves are living in some other places for the sake of job. The more the distance is the urge to impress the child is equally strong. If you cannot impress your child in every occasion, the fear of distance increases in such a manner that you would never expect in reality. In my point of view cookies and chocolates are mandatory when you are sending gifts to your child on Children’s Day but that should be accompanied with the special dish made of your own hand to make him delight and feel the real touch of you. You can also send your picture or a picture that projects both of you together or may be a parent-child album with the other gifts which can bring all the memories to him or her. A careful parent wherever they are can bring up their child most responsible and successful if they really afford to know and understand them deeply. May this Children Day bring all the happiness to your children and let them step one more step ahead to be a responsible Indian for the future era.
