Children

Our Children Are Our Country's Future

The writing quoted below is probably the best summary of how important our interaction with our children is to their health and well-being for life.  The message is one of consistent caring.

CHILDREN LEARN WHAT THEY LIVE
by Dorothy Law Nolte

If Children live with criticism, They learn to condemn. 

If children live with hostility, They learn to fight. 

If children live with ridicule, They learn to be shy. 

If children live with shame, They learn to feel guilty. 

If children live with tolerance, They learn to be patient. 

If children live with encouragement, They learn confidence. 

If children live with praise, They learn to appreciate. 

If children live with fairness, They learn justice. 

If children live with security, They learn to have faith. 

If children live with approval, They learn to like themselves. 

If children live with acceptance and friendship,

They learn to find love in the world.

1982 Dorothy Law Nolte

Our Product

Visit our Shopping Mall to buy a copy of Dorothy Law Nolte's book: Children Learn What They Live. Written with psychotherapist Rachel Harris, this book is, like the poem, both inspirational and practical, and resonates with readers through its clarity. Each of the 19 couplets of the poem is developed into a chapter--on jealousy, shame, praise, recognition, honesty, fairness, tolerance, and more--and offers a clear, constructive perspective on teaching its moral lesson.
