:: children learn what they live ::


IF a child lives with criticism, 
   HE  learns to condemn. 

IF a child lives with hostility, 
   HE learns to fight.

IF a child lives with ridicule, 
   HE learns to be shy. 

IF a child lives with jealousy, 
   HE learns to feel guilty.

IF a child lives with tolerance, 
   HE learns to be patient.

IF a child lives with encouragement, 
   HE learns confidence. 

IF a child lives with praise, 
   HE learns to appreciate.

IF a child lives with fairness, 
   HE learns justice. 

IF a child lives with security, 
   HE learns to have faith.

IF a child lives with approval, 
   HE learns to like himself.

IF a child lives with acceptance and friendship, 
   HE learns to find love in the world.
