What A Child Lives With


every child is a different flower

Approach child two sentiments

if a child lives with fairness

If a child lives with encouragement, she learns to be confident.

If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient.

If a child lives with praise, she learns to be appreciative.

If a child lives with acceptance, he learns to love.

If a child lives with approval, she learns to like herself.

If a child lives with recognition, he learns that it is good to have a goal.

If a child lives with sharing, she learns about generosity.

If a child lives with honesty and fairness, he learns what truth and justice are.

If a child lives with security, she learns to have faith in herself and in those around her.

If a child lives with friendliness, he learns that the world is a nice place in which to live.

If you live with serenity your child will live with peace of mind. With what is your child living?

    This is so inspiring and beautiful, thank you for posting it! πŸ™‚


    Thank you for the reminder, Gina.


    Ooooohhhh you know that I LOVE this post! Reminds me again of what is most important with our children. It’s funny but this is from the 70s but still applies big time to parenting. I can already see with my two little honeys that this is what we are instilling in them. That feels good. A big exhale. Love, Lisa


      Hello dear One! I love how you wrote that it feels good to know that you and your hubby are instilling these timeless qualities to your two little precious ones. And I love the ‘big exhale’. Yes, a sigh of peace, knowing we are doing excellent work with every moment we spend sharing our love with children. Big hugs, and much Love, Gina
