A child lives what it He learns

 

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 lives with encouragement, He learns confidence
If a child lives with praise, He learns to appreciate
If a child lives with fairness, He learns to be just
If a child lives with security, He learns to have faith
If a child lives with approval, He learns to love himself
If lives with acceptance and friendship, He learns to find love In the world

PLAY TODAY

By Leila P. Fagg

You say you love your children, and are concerned they learned today?

So am I -- that’s why I’m providing a variety of kinds of play.

You’re asking what’s the value of blocks and other such play?

Your children are solving problems; they will use that skill everyday.

You’re asking what’s the value of having your children play?

Your daughter’s creating a tower; she may be a builder someday.

You’re saying you don’t want your son to play in that “sissy” way?

He’s learning to cuddle a doll; he may be a father someday.

You’re questioning the interest centers; they just look like useless play?

You’re children are making choices; they’ll be on their own someday.

You’re worried your children aren’t learning and later they’ll have to pay?

They’re learning a pattern for learning; for they’ll be learners always.
