Mindful Parenting: Simple Lessons to be a Better Mom

I came across a picture on Facebook the other day which was a proverb about children.  It touched me deeply.  It covers all of my parenting ideals, that I have never had the eloquence to articulate.

Today I want to share it with you.

I think it’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever read and I hope you enjoy it too. xx

 

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 learns to feel shame, he learns to feel guilty

However….

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 find love in the world
