Children Learn What They Live.

Most countries dedicate one day of the year to celebrate children, as agreed with the ONU. In Mexico, Díadel Niño is widely celebrated at schools, organizations, and within families. On the upcoming occasion of Children’s Day (April 30th), I am posting part of a beautiful poem by Dorothy Law Nolte, Ph.D.

Children Learn What They Live


If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.

If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.

If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.

If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.

If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.

If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.

If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.

If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.

If children live with fairness, they learn justice.

If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.

If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them.

If children live with love and friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place to live, and
to find love and friendship in the world.
