This technique can empower our children and help them to feel their own ‘Super Powers’!
As the parents bringing forth and raising the children that will be living on and helping create the New Earth, we are the “ground crew” so to speak. We are here to help them recognize their full potential and remind them of what they are capable of.
My oldest son went through a several year phase in his life where he was literally obsessed with super heroes. Batman, Captain America, Super-Man, you name it, he went through them all. Having a vivid imagination, he could lose himself in fantasies for hours. But one thing that I noticed was with the end of almost every game would come the hopeless sigh, “I wish I could be like that.”
Because that’s how all of the super hero stories are set up. There’s usually only one super-hero per story line and they are usually the result of some freak accident or are just lucky enough to be born that way (or rich enough to buy the cool suits). The rest of the population is helpless and always requires saving from the powerful super villain who plans on killing everyone and destroying the planet. It used to annoy me how disempowered these stories would leave him feeling after the excitement of playing the game had worn off. I’m all for kids playing and using their imaginations, but I don’t support this helpless human image that Hollywood creates.
