Top 5 Wishes For My Son
Merry Christmas! Yes, it’s Christmas today and looking at social media posts, I saw a lot of ‘What’s your wish?’ or ‘What do you want to receive?’ Instead of asking that to myself, I wrote the top 5 wishes I have for my son when he grows up and can decide for himself.
That he accepts Jesus as his Lord and Savior
Accepting Jesus as his Lord and savior is a guarantee that he will be saved and have eternal life in Heaven. Isn’t this the best wish one could ever have for their children?
Not good deeds, not good words, and not just going to church will save us. John 3:16 – “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Be Kind and Loving
So many bad things are happening. Even so, I believe that we will have a better world if we teach our children to be kind and loving.
Here’s a good read from Making Caring Common of Harvard Graduate School of Education: 7 Tips for Raising Caring Kids (Click the link for their tips on how to put the below guideposts into action).
- Develop caring, loving relationships with your kids
- Be a strong moral role model and mentor.
- Make caring for others a priority and set high ethical expectations.
- Provide opportunities for children to practice caring and gratitude.
- Expand your child’s circle of concern.
- Promote children’s ability to be ethical thinkers and positive change-makers in their communities.
- Help children develop self-control and manage feelings effectively.
To not obsess about having material things to be happy
Yes, there are material things that are essential for us to live. But, obsessing in having more than what we need will never be the answer to happiness and contentment. This is also a reminder to myself especially at times when I want something that is not really necessary but nice to have.
1 Timothy 6:6-12
To have the best circle of friends
Friends will come and go, I know, I’ve lost so many. But, I wish that my son finds the best ones that would influence him to be a better person and who he can still call friends when he’s old.
To be responsible and diligent
I may have failed to practice those attitudes all the time but, definitely, I wish that my son would be responsible and diligent in everything that he will do when he grows up.
These are just the top wishes that I have for my son and I have a lot more. I pray that God would give us wisdom and guide us on how to raise our son properly and instill in him good values that will mold him to be a good person.
How about you? If you are a parent, what’s your wish for your kids?
Let’s stay connected:
Same wishes for my two sons too! I just hope they wilwill be one of the contributors of our country’s success.
I think lahat naman tayo nanay gsto maging gnito ang ating mga anak ❤️
Idagdag ko na rin na wag syang mangbubully.
I wish for my son to grow up to be a gentleman , to have courage to reach for his dreams and always follow God on everything he does.
I wish for baby Elliona to have a good heart with others. ❤ Just be kind
Part din ng wish ko for Elaisha is to have good circle of friends. It is because special child si elaisha and very rare ung makakaunawa at hindi siya ijajudge. She have a friend a regular kid na napakabait who understands her too bad they need to migrate to States next year. Sna may makita pa kaming ganung kaba it na bata
Well Wishes Momsh. Merry Christmas
This is so nice mommy ❤️
Having the right set of friends is crucial to a child’s growth in character and in everything else. i always pray for my kids to find friends who come from families that share the same values as ours.
wish ko din ito sa baby ko, wish nating lahat na nanay, Godbless your family momsh, super cute ng anak mo. pwera usog! 🙂
I think most of the mommies have the same wishes as you. Super cute ng baby mo.
The post captures every moms prayer to their son or daughter

The first one and the rest will follow. In God’s perfect time😘
Awww 🙏🙏🙏 ako din i always wish ko him to have a great circle of friends like the ones i have. Kaya as early as now binibuild ko na sya sa mga taong sinasamahan at di sinasamahan etc i hope hindi sya mapunta sa mga taong di tama.
Awww, this is exactly what every child needs. I bet he’ll be happy reading this post when he’s older. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
I hope this is also every parent’s wish for their children. The world will be such a beautiful place if they grow up to be this kind of individuals 🙂
