What Children Live With…

I read this on the wall at my son’s pre-school and it touched my heart…I would like to share it with you.  After a bit of research I found there are several versions to piece of literature by Dorothy L. Law – this is the one I like the best:

Children Learn What They Live 

 

If a child lives with criticism,
He learns to condemn.


If a child lives with hostility,
He learns to fight.


If a child lives with ridicule,
He learns to be shy.


If a child lives with shame,
He learns to feel guilty.


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


If a child lives with encouragement,
He learns confidence.


If a child lives with praise,
He learns to appreciate.


If a child lives with fairness,
He learns justice.


If a child lives with security,
He learns to have faith.


If a child lives with approval,
He learns to like himself.


If a child lives with acceptance and friendship,
He learns to find love in the world.

 

WITH WHAT IS YOUR CHILD LIVING?

Until next time…
