LEARNING FROM CHILDREN?

What can we learn from the brilliance of children? Have we not all marveled at a statement from a child that seems profound and surprisingly insightful? Do we consider such statements to be cute and random? Is there a chance that such insights are abundantly flowing in that young mind?

From the age of one through ten, before they are taught to become “little” adults, could we as adults, learn from their mindset? Could we learn from their laughter?

Children are not only innocent and curious but also optimistic and joyful and essentially happy. They are, in short, everything adults wish they could be.–Carolyn Haywood

What do they have and what do they do that we admire? What do they have and what do they do that we have lost? Was Peter Pan onto something? Can we embrace our inner Peter Pan?

Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.–Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry

What allows them to be so mindful? What allows them to be spontaneous and happy? If they are bright and smart, can we also consider them wise?

Do you think that there is a wisdom in children that is worth discovering? Is there something you observe in children that you would like to recapture? How can you do that?
