Becoming a Great Human Being. What WILL we Teach Our Children?

What will we teach our children? It’s much more than teaching kids to “share your toys”…

It requires warming up to another person’s personality

and just spending time,

…time getting to know

who they are.

What will we teach our children?

Just like adults,

children need time with their peers.

They need time without adults hovering around

trying to make sure everyone is happy.

Sometimes the best friendships are

quiet and calm and

…organic.

What will we teach our children?

Taking turns doesn’t mean everyone has to be the princess.

Helping someone else is also fabulous and friendly.

Becoming a Great Human Being

Early childhood programs don’t just nurture

the ABCs and 123s.

Good preschool programs allow for the

unfolding of the individual

and the lovely

marinating

of more than one personality

into a delicious environment

of friendship

and happiness.

Becoming a Great Human Being

One-on-one and in a group,

children need to practice

the skills they will master over their entire life.

Becoming a Great Human Being

Communication, contact, connection and compassion.

Attention, respect, trust and confidence.

So, in closing we adults must take a back seat in social settings.

We need to create environments where

children can try and even, perhaps fail…

but situations where they can

practice these opportunities.

 

Create that environment.

Be that parent.

Become that teacher.

Provide that school.
