Children Learn What They Live!

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 to HAVE 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.
