Thursday Thirteen ~ Children Learn What They Live
Thank you Janet and Megan for resurrecting it!
  1. Children Learn What They Live
  2. If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn.
  3. If a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight.
  4. If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy.
  5. If a child lives with shame, he learns to feel guilty.
  6. If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient.
  7. If a child lives with encouragement, he learns confidence.
  8. If a child lives with praise, he learns to appreciate.
  9. If a child lives with fairness, he learns justice.
  10. If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith.
  11. If a child lives with approval, he learns to like himself.
  12. If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, he learns to find love in the world.
