Nurturing an understanding of the Truth principle of Plenty in children is a practice that is helpful to both the parents and the children. Reinforcing the idea that there is Plenty can be done when communicating with your children and with others when they are around your children, like your spouse and friends, throughout the day. You can make a conscious effort to use words and phrases related to “enough” and “plenty” rather than language related to lack and “not enough” when you’re talking about things in all aspects of life.
One specific example that is discussed by many families is a summer vacation, like going to the beach or a resort. Even if at the moment you aren’t feeling prosperous enough for planning such a vacation, you can know that in Truth you are provided in all ways to support a desire like a vacation, not just in money substance but in opportunities that can help in the demonstration of the vacation, like winning a vacation, receiving a gift of a vacation, having offers to use vacation tickets or rentals someone else can’t use, and “happening” to learn about special promotions and discounts. Knowing this, you can speak to your children with confidence, trust, and prosperity-oriented language about planning a vacation, regardless of what the current conditions may show. You can still save money in a vacation “jar” or vacation account and know that this is an expression of the bountiful substance coming to you to support your perfect vacation. You can remind yourself and your children that everything is coming together for the perfect vacation and along with them you can imagine all of you enjoying a wonderful time. You can see it, feel it, expect it, and affirm it with “and so it is”!
