Is it soaking in?????
I have to admit i am struggling with my Banjo. But i feel i need to put it out there, as well as recored it in time for future reference!
Everyday i tell him the same things;
"Don't hit your sister. "
"Be gentle with your little brother."
"Decided if it is the right or wrong thing to do be for you do it."
"Listen to what people want."
"Think about others, not just yourself."
Every single day i say these same statements to him, some of them i repeat many times in one day.
I am just at a loss as to weather i am making any difference in his personality. The problem is he has such energy and enthusiasm for life he only lives within the moment, so it is as if he can not hear, see or think beyond that point. The problem with that way of living is that it can seem a very selfish one.
Deep down, I don't believe Banjo to be a selfish person, but the way in which he lives life, makes me wonder from time to time... Why is it that he cant think of others before himself in the moment?
I guess all i can do is stay persistent, and hope that one day it will soak in something will just click!
