Things you must never buy for your children during this children’s day

Gideon Dosu

One of the things that makes children day a memorable day for our children is by taking them out and buying things for them. Anything you buy for them during this period, they cherish it very well. But we found out that many parents buy wrong things for their children thereby doing them a whole lot of harm than good. Here is the list of things you shouldn’t buy for them;

  1. Toy Gun: Don’t dare buy toy gun for your children because it may be depositing some wrong notion into them. There is a story about a boy whose ambition was to become a police man. When he was asked the reason why? He said if he becomes a police man, he will have access to gun so that he can kill his father who normally beats and mistreats their mother in their presence.
  2.  Unhealthy food: Many parents will plan to take their children to different eateries but only few will be mindful of the kinds of food they eat.  Parents should ensure their children eat good food that will nourish them.
  3. Unhealthy drink: Drinks full of sugar or with artificial sweetener should be discouraged because they will turn back and do more damage to the health of your children. They should go for natural fruits juice instead.
  4. Clothes not edifying: Clothes that open some delicate part of the body should be avoided, see through and tight clothes that could draw undue attention to your children should be done away with.
  5. Clothes with demonic label: Some parents buy clothes not minding what is written on the clothe. I have seen a child who worn a clothe that they wrote little rebel, I am sexy, etc and the parent did not see anything wrong with it.
  6. Toys attributed to demon: There are some toys that could secretly imitate our children and make them vulnerable to evil. Such toys must be avoided.
  7. Kiddies makeup and nail polish: This may cause your children especially girls to be addicted to painting of lips and makeup which may not help them at the long run
  8. Violent Video Games: There are some video games that will enhance  violent attitudes in the life of your children. This must be avoided
  9. Violent video Films:Violent films as well is very dangerous to them, it makes them not to be merciful and always want them to take revenge in life
  10. Anything they ask for: this may sound funny but it’s true and real. Some children want to be over indulged and all they do is to be dictating for their parents. This shouldn’t be encouraged this season but, rather, get them what you as the parent know is good for them and let them know that they can not always have their way.
