Talinism and Aliker’s Gold for the Day: Teach Your Children Well

Talinism and Aliker’s Gold for the day: “Teach your children the good qualities, teach your children to do good, teach your children to respect others.” Get the skinny straight from Talin Orfali at

Aliker’s Gold: “Just like in a kraal, the bull that is better fed wins its fights. In the mind are two bulls (thoughts), negative thoughts and positive thoughts. If you feed your mind with positive ideas, you reap joy and happiness and vice versa. In Africa, names have meaning. Those who name their children Komakech (I am unlucky), fortune elude them. Speak positively to yourself and to others and you will find joy. I learnt to tell myself how much I am loved and found happiness in this magic and I passed it on to my family.” Now visit the gold mine at https://happinessnest.wordpress.com/category/joy/.

By the end of the month, I’ll have completed a year of blogging on PostADay 2011 at WordPress. I’ve talked too much, learned a lot, made good friends, and learned to shut up. And it cost me nearly nothing. The best gift to get is the one to give–kindness. Pass it on.

    Teach your children well,
    Their father’s hell did slowly go by,
    And feed them on your dreams
    The one they picked, the one you’ll know by. these words are a code I try to live I have three grown sons.

    Aliker’s Gold is 24 Karat! Thank you so much for passing on this wisdom. Yes, it is ESPECIALLY important to be positive with children.

    Yep – positive thoughts actually change our brain physically … the secret is to hard wire the little ones for joy and hope from day “dot” (see Steve Biddulph’s book on whether under threes should go into care – book refers to studies that show we learn and are “hard wired” in the first three years of life…fascinating read). Even so, I believe with God we can be “rewired” for a more positive life, with the creative force of the word through The Word. Blessings, God is Good.
