“If I Had My Child To Raise Over Again”, Diane Loomans

Parenting is a job of great responsibility. No one ever taught us how to be great parents; there is no recipe, no description for this demanding role. However, we can always do something different and special for our children. Do whatever it takes for them to grow up into strong, healthy, happy and responsible adults who are proud of the way their parents raised them.

If I had My Child to Raise Over Again, Diane Loomans

 

Children Learn What They Live, By Dorothy Law Nolte (1972)

If we want to be considered as responsible for our mission to educate children effectively, we have to take into serious consideration the verses of Dorothy’s Law Nolte poem of 1972 ‘Children Learn What They Live’:

Children Learn What They Live, By Dorothy Law Nolte (1972)

 

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.

If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.

If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.

If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.

If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.

If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.


If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.

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 friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.
