Children Learn What They Live ~ Prayer by Dorothy Law Nolte

If children live with criticism,

Growing wholesome children
Growing wholesome children

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 encouragement,

they learn confidence.


If children live with tolerance,

they learn to be patient.


If children live with praise,

they learn to appreciate.


If children live with acceptance,

they learn love.


If children live with approval,

they learn to like themselves.


If children live with honesty,

they learn truthfulness.


If children live with security,

they learn to have faith in themselves and others.


If children live with friendliness,

they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.
