Impressions on Children

Children are like wet cement. Whatever falls on them makes an impression. ~Dr. Haim Ginott

Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get. ~H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Here are some fantastic one-page articles about teaching and encouraging kindness in children, even when they’re still toddlers. It’s really never too early to begin. May peace prevail. Namaste. Gina

  1. Gina, both our children were raised on the child-rearing philosophy of Haim Ginott so it was good to see that quote by him. Loved the quote and post, thank you.

  2. I love children! Sometimes even better than adults, they are so much more free and open, not yet so socialized into this world, still keeping in them that memory of a world beyond this, where nothing exists but Love. Thank you for this lovely post!🙂

    • Hello lovely Line! Your comment reminds me of a favorite quote: “I love these little people and it is not a slight thing when they, who are so fresh from God, love us.” ~Charles Dickens. Children are amazing! May we all endeavor to make the ‘best impressions’ on them! hugs, Gina
