It is a very simple question unless we want to answer it.
When did I last thank my child for making me learn something new or something that i had forgot over the years?
As a life transformation coach,I have come across thousands of children in last fifteen years and they all have taught me in their own unique ways.(I have an abundant supply of this emotion called Parenting)
I have learnt from these children to value’The Power of Now‘.Children don’t know how to worry for the future. We teach them how to worry.The other day , my daughter had an assessment at school and she was merrily reading a Ruskin Bond novel.I reminded her twice in a fearful tone about her coming assessment.
“Is it essential to worry?”she asked me.
Children have hourly goals and daily dreams but they are the most important tasks till they last.
My daughter has taught me to be enthusiastic.She can make everything fresh and happening with her exuberance.She is excited to open a new bar of soap, she looks forward to meet her home room teacher everyday.
Lets learn from our children as much as we want them to learn from us.I am sure they will beat us hollow.
