Children

With love to mum and dad on my birthday.

Thank you for everything.

If children live with criticism
they learn to condemn

If children live with hostility
they learn to fight

If children live with ridicule
they learn to be shy

If children live with shame
they learn to feel guilty

If children live with tolerance
they learn to be patient

If children live with encouragement
they learn confidence

If children live with praise
they learn to appreciate

If children live with fairness
they learn justice

If children live with security
they learn to have faith

If children live with approval
they learn to like themselves

If children live with acceptance and friendship
they learn to find love in the world

One thought on “Children

  1. True words, sometimes hard to do, thank you to friends such as you, who give us the strength to start a new.
    I will remind myself of these words in times of difficulty for their meaning holds the future.
