“Children motivate me most of all to be kind. When a child is nice to you, it’s straight from the heart and without hidden agendas. I feel if everyone would always be kind to children they would all grow up to be kind adults and what a world that would be!” –Nativtxn
What a wonderful idea! Imagine if all of us treated children with respect, understanding and love. Think of the type of adults we would have if we all listened to our children, said yes more often, took interest in their views and helped them explore the world around them.
Instead of telling them “That won’t work,” or ‘That’s stupid,” we could say “Give it a try,” and “What a unique idea.” Children have some of the most unique ideas ever – what if we didn’t belittle those ideas and instead encouraged more use of their imagination. What kind of a world would we have?
Let’s practice being more young at heart – being more open, more affectionate, forgiving more easily and ready to try something new. How fantastic to see the brighter side and possibilities of life so readily. With a child-like attitude we could change our world drastically in a few short years.
