Here are 10 good lessons that children can teach us:
Many times a day. Adults laugh on average 5 times a day, while the children laugh 300 times a day.
- To eradicate toxic people from life
If children do not like someone, they either fight or ignore or pick up the toys and go home. They do not let some jerk drain their energy and make them angry.
- Never angry for days or weeks
They cry and scream and hour later they watch the cartoon as if nothing happened. That is the emotional health.
- Children do not tolerate boredom
They are always in action. They always find ways to be happy.
- Children are willing to do something new
They are willing to make complete fool of themselves in front of everyone. They do not think they need to be a professional singers to sing their favourite song in front of everyone. They do not care about their reputation. They just care for fun.
They ask a whole bunch of stupid and smart questions unapologetically. That’s how they learn and discover.
- Children are grateful
Although the society transforms them into thinking that they will be happy only if they get the newest whatever is trendy. Children are naturally happy. When I once asked my nephew what he wants me to buy for him, he said: “Come on Gesture, don’t bother. I have everything!” 3 year old! That was cool.
- Children are always thrilled
They find something to enjoy every in single day. They get up psyched about the day ahead. They are fully alive.
- They are all artists
They are making one sketch after another, they play, they destroy, and they start over. They never wonder: Does this sketch truly represents what l want? Am I really an artist now? They just do they work. They are world class artists.
- They want to learn
They do not pretend they understand how things work. They are not trying to prove their expertise. They look what is happening right in front of them with curiosity and ability to astonish. That is what makes them philosophers.
Generally, children can help us get back to who we were before the world told us who we should be. That is the precious lesson.
