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 shame, 
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.
