Poem for Reflection

     

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 love the world.
