A poem for Parents and Teachers

by admin on August 18, 2015

If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy
If a child lives with jealousy, he learns what envy is
If a child lives with shame, he learns to feel guilty
If a child lives with encouragement, he learns to be confident
If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient
If a child lives with praise, he learns to be appreciative
If a child lives with acceptance, he learns to love
If a child lives with approval, he learns to like himself
If a child lives with recognition, he learns that it is good to have a goal
If a child lives with sharing, he learns about generosity
If a child lives with honesty and fairness, he learns what truth & justice are
If a child lives with security he learns to have faith in himself and in those around him
If you live with serenity,
your child will live with peace of mind.
