    If a children live with criticism, they learn to condemn

    If children live with hostility, they learn to fight

    If children live with redicule, they learn to be shy

    If children live with shame, they learn to be guilty

    If children live with tolerance, they learn to be patient

    If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence

    If a child lives with praise, they learn tp appreciate

    If a child lives with fairness, they learn justice

    If a child lives with security, they learn to have faith

    If a child lives with approval, they learn to like themselves

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

    Good post. I wish all parents would live by these thoughts. I have learned from my children to love and respect them and they will love and respect you back. I have three wonderful children that are confident, loving and patient. So I hope they are living what they see.

    That's a great post. It's very true. A child absorbs and mirrors everything. So don't do anything that you wouldn't want your kids to be doing.

    Good post brother, they say kids learn the most important things before the age of 3. Just because they are young, dont mean they dont see what is going on around them.

    Good thread copycat It's true kids see and do, they hear and don't forget. Arlington takes a kid fishing and they catch plastic singing bass, then he sinks his boat and catches his shirt on fire for a SOS signal.:big_smile: :lol:
