Lessons From Children


Children learn from parents but parents can also learn many things from a child. A child is full of innocence and he does everything earnestly. Here we have given some real life accounts with children. Read and learn some simple lessons in life.

Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was
asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.

The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.

Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. When his mother asked him what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said,
"Nothing, I just helped him cry."

Teacher Debbie Moon's first graders were discussing a picture of a family. One little boy in the picture had a different color hair than the other family members.

One child suggested that he was adopted and a little girl said, "I know all about adoptions because I was adopted. "What does it mean to be adopted?" asked another child. "It means," said the girl,
"That you grew in your mommy's heart instead of her tummy."

Whenever I'm disappointed with my spot in life, I stop and think about little Jamie Scott.

Jamie was trying out for a part in a school play. His mother told me that he'd set his heart on being in it, though she feared he would not be chosen.

On the day the parts were awarded, I went with her to collect him after
school. Jamie rushed up to her, eyes shining with pride and excitement.
"Guess what Mom," he shouted, and then said those words that will
remain a lesson to me:
"I've been chosen to clap and cheer."

A lesson in "heart" is my little 10 year old daughter, Sarah, who was
born with a muscle missing in her foot and wears a brace all the time. She came home one beautiful spring day to tell me she had competed in "field day" that's where they have lots of races and other competitive events.

Because of her leg support, my mind raced as I tried to think of
encouragement for my Sarah, things I could say to her about not letting
this get her down, but before I could get a word out, she said "Daddy,
I won two of the races!" I couldn't believe it!

And then Sarah said, "I had an advantage." Ah. I knew it. I thought she
must have been given a head start...some kind of physical advantage.
But again, before I could say anything, she said,
"Daddy, I didn't get a head start...My advantage was I had to try harder!"

An Eye Witness Account from New York City, on a cold day in December:

A little boy about 10 years old was standing before a shoe store on the
roadway, barefooted, peering through the window, and shivering with cold. A lady approached the boy and said, "My little fellow, why are you looking so earnestly in that window?"

"I was asking God to give me a pair of shoes," was the boy's reply.
The lady took him by the hand and went into the store and asked the
Clerk to get half a dozen pairs of socks for the boy. She then asked if he could give her a basin of water and a towel. He quickly brought them to her. She took the little fellow to the back part of the store and, removing her gloves, knelt down, washed his little feet, and dried them with a towel.
By this time the clerk had returned with the socks. Placing a pair upon
The boy's feet, she purchased him a pair of shoes. She tied up the
Remaining pairs of socks and gave them to him. She patted him on the head and said, "No doubt, my little fellow, you feel more comfortable now?"

As she turned to go, the astonished lad caught her by the hand, and looking up in her face, with tears in his eyes, answered the question with these words:
"Are you God's Wife?"

When ever I feel low or am stressed out, I spent sometime with my little kid. Her sweet innocent talks make me forget all my sorrows and I become my cheerful self again.

Really nice thoughts. Kids are innocent so they do what they feel like and sometimes this is more helping than words of wisdom.
