What A Child Lives With

every child is a different flower

Approach child two sentiments

if a child lives with fairness

If a child lives with encouragement, she learns to be confident.

If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient.

If a child lives with praise, she learns to be appreciative.

If a child lives with acceptance, he learns to love.

If a child lives with approval, she learns to like herself.

If a child lives with recognition, he learns that it is good to have a goal.

If a child lives with sharing, she learns about generosity.

If a child lives with honesty and fairness, he learns what truth and justice are.

If a child lives with security, she learns to have faith in herself and in those around her.

If a child lives with friendliness, he learns that the world is a nice place in which to live.

If you live with serenity your child will live with peace of mind. With what is your child living?

  1. Ooooohhhh you know that I LOVE this post! Reminds me again of what is most important with our children. It’s funny but this is from the 70s but still applies big time to parenting. I can already see with my two little honeys that this is what we are instilling in them. That feels good. A big exhale. Love, Lisa

    1. Hello dear One! I love how you wrote that it feels good to know that you and your hubby are instilling these timeless qualities to your two little precious ones. And I love the ‘big exhale’. Yes, a sigh of peace, knowing we are doing excellent work with every moment we spend sharing our love with children. Big hugs, and much Love, Gina
