12 Important Lessons from MLK to Teach Our Children

Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. It is the day Americans honor Dr. King’s legacy and his key role in helping our nation get closer to its goal of equality for all. There are several important lessons from MLK that we can teach our children. Let’s honor this day by sharing these lessons with our kids and implementing them into our own lives.

1. Dare to dream . . . and dream big.

Without a doubt, the quote that most people associate with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. comes from his historic 1963 speech, “I have a dream.” Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream and he declared it to the world. No matter who you are or how big your dreams are, your dreams are valid. Teaching our children to dream big and work hard is a powerful lesson. Maybe your child dreams about becoming a doctor or an astronaut or a ballerina or a YouTube star. Maybe they dream about riding their bike without training wheels, being the fastest runner in their class or tying their shoes by themselves. No matter how big or small, let’s teach our children to believe in themselves, believe in their dreams and work hard to make those dreams come true.

2. Love others.

Martin Luther King Jr. believed in the power of love. He taught to love others and to not hate because in the end, love always wins. He believed that hating people is stooping low and that no one should ever fall prey to hate. Because when you return hate for hate, no one wins.

“Let no man pull you so low as to hate him.” – MLK

So when your child gets upset with you or a friend or teacher, let’s remember this message and remember the power of love. This is one of our favorite lessons from MLK.

MLK quote

3. Don’t judge someone by their appearance.

We know that children are always the first to point out differences in others–with complete innocence, of course. It’s important for us parents to teach our children that everyone is different in terms of appearance, but the most important indicator of a person’s goodness is their character. Just because someone looks different than you on the outside doesn’t mean that we should treat them any differently. The character and moral qualities of a person is what we should use to choose who we want to spend our time and energy with.

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” – MLK

4. Do not give up! Push on and persevere.

MLK believed in his dream. He believed in it so much that even though he was incarcerated on different occasions, he was never deterred from fighting for his dream for human rights. If you are going through tough times it does not mean that you should quit. Never quit, just keep moving forward.

If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” – MLK

It’s vital that our children learn that the most worthwhile goals are often the most difficult to achieve. They should not give up at the first sign of difficulty. This goes for learning an instrument, to becoming the best player on the team or even going to school on a consistent basis. The best goals are oftentimes the toughest to strive for.

5. To succeed you must work hard.

This goes along with the previous point. Dr. King and many others dedicated many, many years of their lives to the Civil Rights movement. While there may be some lucky people who succeed in life without much effort, this is extremely rare. And, in most cases, the people whom we think succeeded without much effort actually worked extremely hard every day to accomplish their achievements. So if your child wants to be the best on the soccer field or the best reader in the class they must work hard and practice a lot to become the best he/she can be.

6. Education is of the utmost importance.

Kids need to learn the importance of good education. Going to school and the lessons we learn from our parents are the pillars on which we build our core values. MLK believed in empowering the human mind through education. He described ignorance as a dangerous thing.

“Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” – MLK

Critical thinking is a skill that allows children to analyze subjects from multiple points of view. It lends itself to rational thinking and prevents biases.

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.” – MLK

7. Serve others.

Martin Luther King Jr. exemplified a life of service. He believed serving others is the epitome of greatness:

Martin Luther King Jr quote

Kids should learn how sharing, pulling others up when they’re down and being selfless can make their lives (and the lives of others) more joyful. It is always so much better to give than it is to receive.

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’” – MLK

8. Forgive

Be quick to forgive others. This can be a hard lesson to learn, but we should never allow hatred to develop in our hearts for anyone. That hatred only causes us pain. Preventing hatred starts by learning to forgive quickly. Let’s talk to our children about forgiveness and how it releases us from pain more than it does the other person.

“Forgiveness is not an occasional act; it is a constant attitude.” – MLK

9. Stand up for what is right.

MLK’s stance for justice was obvious. He discouraged keeping quiet in the face of injustice and standing up for what is right.

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” – MLK

If our children see bullying or any injustice happening to others, encourage them to stand up for the victims and do what is right even if it goes against what is popular.

MLK quote

10. Live life with purpose.

This can be a big lesson for our littles to learn and grasp, but I believe it’s a lesson that we need to exemplify ourselves to teach our children. Live for something. Make a purpose in your life. It could be big, or it could be small. It’s important we learn to be passionate, and that we learn to love and give to a cause bigger than ourselves. This is why we were created . . . to fill our lives with purpose.

“I submit to you that if a man hasn’t discovered something that he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.” – MLK

11. Have faith.

Martin Luther King Jr. was a man of great faith, who delighted in doing God’s will.

MLK quote

All through his life, his faith in God was obvious in his thoughts, actions, and speech. Believe in yourself and believe that God is with you every step of the way.

12. All things are possible.

MLK inspired greatness in people. He showed us all that there is so much power in the human spirit to accomplish whatever we set our hearts and minds to do. For him “impossible” was not an acceptable word. He had a dream for a future where segregation will be history and everyone will be treated equally regardless of the color of their skin. Whatever your child’s dreams are, they are possible. Working hard, not giving up, being kind to others and following our purpose. We will succeed!

Thank you, Martin Luther King Jr, for inspiring, teaching and guiding this nation. Thank you for the opportunities you’ve given millions and millions of people, and for the hope you’ve instilled for a brighter future.

Being hard on ourselves just means that we are try Being hard on ourselves just means that we are trying to be the best mothers to our children that we can be . . .
And giving ourselves grace means that we recognize that we are only human and that we will make mistakes along the way.
It’s okay to make mistakes as long as we’re trying. And when we make mistakes, recognize them, admit them, ask for forgiveness and keep going. ❤️ Children easily forgive us just like we easily forgive them. It’s because of love. Love is a powerful thing. Now we just need to show ourselves a little more of that love too. 💕

Becoming a #newmom is simultaneously one of the most exciting and nerve-wracking moments in a person’s life. Your baby is finally here, and you get to embark on this amazing new phase of life. 😍 On the flipside, you also suddenly have a new life to take care of –  and one that is 100% dependent on you. Cue the anxiousness! 😳 To make it even more fun, there’s definitely no instruction manual for this new tiny human, but seemingly everyone has an opinion and they are not afraid to give their (well-meaning but usually irritating) advice to new moms. 🙄 What new moms need to hear and what most everyone tells them are, unfortunately, very different things!⁠ So if you’re wondering what you should and shouldn’t say to a new mom, here are a few quick tips.⁠ 👍⁠ {Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading!}⁠

You've just welcomed a new baby into your arms. Co You've just welcomed a new baby into your arms. Congratulations! 🤗🎉 There is so much oxytocin in the room (the "love" hormone) that everyone is on a high! 😍 Your body has accomplished so much up to this point, growing and birthing a baby, and it will continue to do hard work during your recovery post-birth. 💪 But you've done it! And you and your partner rejoice! yayyy!⁠ 🥰

As the days pass after giving birth your exhaustion levels go up. 😴 After delivering a baby, regardless of the method of delivery, and staying up all night (night after night) #sex may be one of the last things on your mind. 🙅‍♀️ Between the physical changes to your body from the delivery, the exhaustion of caring for a newborn, and the emotional changes induced by hormones, there are just a few barriers to #sexafterbaby. If you feel this way, the good news is these feelings are very normal, common, and temporary. But, it is also normal, common, and good to want to have sex with your partner as soon as you can. ❤️ But how long do you need to wait to have sex after having a baby? And why?⁠ 🤔 We have an OBGYN answering these questions and more on baby-chick.com {Click the 🔗 in our bio!}⁠

❤️ How to Parent With Encouragement Instead of ❤️ How to Parent With Encouragement Instead of Criticism ❤️⁠
.⁠
As a both a parent and an educator, my hope is to parent with encouragement instead of criticism. But like any parent, I’m not perfect, and I’ve been on my own journey to learn how to discipline my children without criticizing them when they make a mistake. This topic has been of particular interest to me over the years.⁠
.⁠
A fascinating article published in The Journal of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology found that children who are constantly being criticized develop a habit of avoiding looking at other people’s facial expressions—whether those people are expressing positive or negative feelings. By avoiding looking at other people, children’s ability to receive positive information and make positive social connection with others is undermined. Researchers suggest that this could lead to anxiety and depression in that child.⁠
.⁠
More and more scientific research shows how parenting and education techniques that revolve around encouragement rather than criticism can lead to a healthier self-image and positive behavior in children. With depression, anxiety, and suicide on the rise for youth across our nation, it is more important than ever before for us to lovingly examine the ways we parent and how we talk to our children during these early childhood years. {Continue reading by clicking 🔗 in bio❤️}⁠

🧘‍♀️ 10 Self-Care Necessities for Moms 💅⁠
.⁠
As mothers, we are usually the last ones on our priority list. There is so much to do . . . for the house, for our jobs, for our partners and pets, and especially for our children. It can leave us with little to no time for ourselves. With self-care making a comeback and more people recognizing the importance of "me time" and mental health, people are speaking up and making themselves a priority again. As moms, we need to do the same. Because as they say, it's not us saying "me first" it's us saying "me too." Moms matter! So if you're looking for some items that can help you put yourself back on your to-do list, we're sharing our self-care necessities for moms that we love and recommend. ❤️ {Click 🔗 in bio to check them out!}⁠

😴 Finding Rest During the Newborn Days 😴⁠ 😴 Finding Rest During the Newborn Days 😴⁠
.⁠
Nothing is more amazing than the moment you see your baby’s face for the first time. The joy, excitement and love that overcome you make it feel like you are literally on top of the world! It isn’t until you get home where the doubts, fear and overwhelming feelings begin to kick in. Suddenly, you are responsible for this tiny, helpless being . . . who won't sleep! 😳 You are feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. And you start to wonder how you will ever find rest during these seemingly endless newborn days. 😖⁠
.⁠
Unfortunately, nothing can prepare you for how hard, exhausting, lonely and overwhelming motherhood can be. There are levels of tired no one can accurately describe. The good news is that you are not alone, and the way you're feeling is very normal. And I am here to tell you that you are doing great and that these hard moments won’t last forever.⁠
.⁠
As a mom of three little ones (6 years, 4 years and 2 years) I have experienced first-hand MANY exhausting moments. As a Certified Sleep Consultant, I have worked with hundreds of families who are experiencing exhausting moments themselves. We all go through really hard times on our parenting journey and that is okay. I always tell my fellow moms that it is okay to NOT be okay! One of my favorite quotes is “we are wired to do hard things.” But that doesn't mean you can't get some help and advice along the way. {Click the 🔗 in bio to continue reading how to find rest during the newborn days}⁠

.⁠
Welcome to #parenthood! After what seems like forever, baby has finally arrived. 😍 This is one of the most exciting, nerve-wracking times a person can have in their life, and it can be very easy to get overwhelmed and lost in the moment. 🙈 But this first week as a new parent can be one of the hardest.⁠
.⁠
I thought reading a few books was all I really needed to prepare me for motherhood, but in the end, it was completely different from anything I ever imagined. The first week, especially, was much more overwhelming than I expected; you’re physically recovering from #childbirth, your hormones running haywire as they start to resettle back to some sort of normal, and you’re getting to know your baby, all while trying to get them to eat, sleep, and stay healthy and strong.⁠
.⁠
Looking back on that time, there are definitely more than a handful of things I wish I could have told my newbie-mom self to do, but here are my top five pieces of advice for the first week as a new parent. {Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading!}⁠

🍌 Baby-Led Weaning is Actually the Best Lazy Pa 🍌 Baby-Led Weaning is Actually the Best Lazy Parenting Hack 🥑⁠
.⁠
Baby-led Weaning has become a very popular feeding trend in the last decade or so. When I first started having kids, though, I'd never heard of it. After my daughter was born, I assumed I would eventually give her purees when it was time to start her on solid food. However, I knew I would never give her the awful canned baby food in the grocery store.⁠
.⁠
For one thing, I had terrible college experiences (hey, sorority games!) trying those purees and the thought of it made me gag. Secondly, I knew from research that most of these store-bought purees were not made with quality ingredients and often had sugar added. I preferred to feed my baby good food, so I decided I was going to make her purees. How hard could it be?⁠
.⁠
Long story short, I survived one week making homemade purees. ONE WEEK. I discovered the hard way that I did not have time, nor patience, nor energy, to make my kid food every several days. Admitting to myself that I was a lazy mom (i.e., tired mom), I was determined to find a better way. I started researching other methods of introducing solids and (praise the heavens!) I stumbled onto Baby-Led Weaning. 🙌 {Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading about Baby Led Weaning!}⁠

Yes, pregnancy is a blessing. But no, you don’t Yes, pregnancy is a blessing. But no, you don’t have to love every minute of it to be a good mom. Just because you might not like moments (or days or weeks) of being pregnant, it doesn’t mean you don’t want your baby or don’t love your baby or that you’re ungrateful to be pregnant. Pregnancy is a lot of work and can be crazy uncomfortable and exhausting. But, of course, you love your baby. It’s okay to be tired and over it and ready to meet your baby. And yes, you are still a good mom. ❤️

.⁠
Ah, #dating. Do you remember those days? After #marriage and a baby, dating your partner is probably the last thing on your mind. I get it. Dating is expensive. It takes time. It takes energy. These are things you may be lacking as a busy couple. But, there are low cost #datenight ideas you can incorporate into your busy schedule and I think you should. Why? Because dating your partner now is more important than ever.⁠
.⁠
Not only is dating after you are #married incredibly beneficial to your marriage, it's also really important to the rest of your #family dynamic. When mom and dad are happy and show #love toward one another, kids can feel that energy. The same is true when mom and dad aren't happy. For these reasons, date night should be one of the most important appointments on that very busy family calendar!⁠
.⁠
With a little planning, you can incorporate date night back into your schedule. Start with one night a month, for example. Then perhaps try to find time for one night a week. There are a lot of ways you and your partner can invest in one another without spending much (if anything!) and, perhaps, not even leaving the house! Here are some low cost date night ideas you can use to start making your dating life a priority again. {Click 🔗 in bio to check out our low cost date night ideas!}⁠
