The phrase “Children are our future” has been extremely overused to the point that society has begun to ignore it. I am a Nursing major at Loyola University New Orleans and I have a passion for children. There is no such thing as a bad child and society makes some of them believe they are. A seemingly problematic child only needs time and dedication. I have had my fair share of rebellious children yet they each had one specific activity that calmed them and engaged them. For most of these children, it is art. Drawing and painting clams down a child more than any video game or television show could. The fact that many schools in the United States are cutting their art programs does not help these children who need a moment in their day to relax. Children develop at different speeds and the school system is designed in a way that makes those who are behind feel imbecilic or useless. Through art a child can express their emotions through the use of line, design and color. I would focus on teaching children art and trying to make them feel special in a society that discourages individuality. My goal would consist of giving a child a purpose, something to low forward to and limit the cutting of art programs in schools. It is how I would make a living while helping the world one child at a time.
