whose to blame

My oldest son turned 5 this week ,5 what an age people say well he still little but feels like it all going by to fast i want to slow it down hold him tight never let him go so he ever grow up. But  cant no matter how hard i try he going to get older he not going to be my baby forever. which is such a shame as he such a lovey litttle boy who comes out with some very funny things.

The other week he said to my mum nanny never stop breathing. I looked at my mum she looked at me and he smile and said “nanny never stop breathing nanny or you die but don’t worry if you die you go to heaven and its nice there so iv been told.”  The comment come fro no ware my mum has no problems breathing we not talking at that moment about breathing nothing so i was a bit shocked and taken back by it.

I think he such a wonderful child as he sees people for who they are not taken back by illness or skin tone or region he just sees the person.

when he was about three we were going down the street and these children were pointing and making  comments about this person when we went by saw person had one legs and was trying to fix her artfical leg on kierren toddled over and said to the lady” can i help you if you need help i sometimes help mummy not often as she says not my place to help her”  the lady who must been in her early 40s and had army jumer on smiled at him and said thank you little man but you have helpped gave him a pound which he kept saying he could not take till i said it was ok and lady said to me which even now makes me smile” that what is wrong with the world and mainly this nation of all people going down the street only one person saw the problem not the difference  and that person was only three years old” then she told me she was an american solider that lost her leg in gulf war that she came here and married a British gentlemen  but sadly never lasted but as she had a daughter with him she stayed here but was finding it hard but my boy had given her faith again as he was one of only people to show no fear when seeing her stump and to still treat her as a human not someone to fear “. Should it be up to the next generation to give us faith in humanity or should we be giving them it like are parents did us and are grandparents did them. what dos it say about us as parents when less children are accepting understanding and empathetic to one and another. Are we lacking when it comes to teaching are children these  main morals and failing them and are self, who is to blame?
