Tiny Teachers

Children are the best teachers in the world. They teach young women how to be mothers and young men how to be fathers. They teach older men and women how to be grandparents. They even teach older children how to be brothers and sisters.

 Think about all the skills children teach people. They teach mums how to be nurses and dads how to be heroes. They teach brothers and sisters how to share….toys, rooms, dreams and cookies. They even teach teachers how to teach in creative and fun ways.

 Children teach the world how to love. They teach us to look past a person’s skin colour right to their heart. They teach us how to be honest, open and innocent. And they teach us how to hug and laugh and be enthusiastic.

 Children make us keep our promises because they never

 forget one that we make. They even make us into scientists  and professors by asking “Why?” about everything that moves and many things that don’t.

Isn’t it interesting that while we are teaching our children to be adults,
                                                         they are teaching us how to be children?                                                   

    That’s especially important when we remember that Jesus said,

“Let the little children come to me.  

Don’t stop them, because the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to people who are like these  children.”             

                                                  (Matthew 19:14)
