Month of the Young Child

April is the "Month of the Young Child".  As Great Books for Children caters to young children and the adults in their lives, I thought it would be fitting to post a few thoughts I like to keep in mind as I raise my young children (ages 1 and 3).
"You know, I think everybody longs to be loved, and longs to know that he or she is lovable.  And, consequently, the greatest thing that we can do is to help somebody know that they're loved and capable of loving" - Fred Rogers (who was definitely an expert on the young child)

"While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about." - Angela Schwindt

"A child seldom needs a good talking to as a good listening to." - Robert Braul

Children Learn What They Live

If children live with hostility, 
they learn to fight.

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

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 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.
-Dorothy Law Nolte, Ph.D.
