Greatest gift for children by parents - freedom of expression

In this video, Nayaswami Jyotish makes an appeal to parents to allow freedom of expression to their children. Children need to express themselves in many different ways. He goes back to the basics of human existence and explains how we lead our lives at different levels. We therefore need to express ourselves at all these levels - physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual and so on.. Same applies to children. If any of these expressions is suppressed, it will lead to stress, imbalance in personal growth and finally a colossal waste of human potential. Encouraging freedom of expression by children will mean that we as parents, contribute to the all rounded growth of the child. This will ensure that the child grows into a mature and compassionate human being.
