Lessons I Have Learned From Children Part 5

These are the final lessons my children have taught me to date as continued from the June 15 post (if you haven’t read yet – please read the previous posts for Parts 1 through Part 4)

So….here’s my 2 cents on the life lessons from my children ages 14.5 to 16.5

1. “Grow up!” … Is a relative term
2. Everything old becomes new again (music, clothes & movies)
3. No matter how cool you think you are… to your children you’re STILL not cool
4. When they’re yelling at you to leave them alone… Don’t, they want to know that they are still loved by YOU
5. Children need you to be their parent… they don’t need you as their “friend”
6. Hugs still take the hurts away
7. It’s JUST hair… let them style it their way (this too shall pass)
8. Be consistent
9. Be resilient
10. Say “I’m sorry” as soon as you realize you’ve made a mistake
11. Nothing teaches the lesson faster than the consequences of THEIR actions
12. Keep learning each day
13. Curiosity keeps you young
14. Be humble
15. Be compassionate
16. Shuffle, shout, lounge, laugh, text, talk , sharing & caring
17. Dreams are a good thing
18. Daring to be real

What lessons would your children say they taught you?

Have you asked them yet?

Until next time… Make each day count!

Be alive,

    Thank you Evan for your kind words. I have just written down what my fantastic teachers (Children) have taught me. They are the ones that have the Degree in Life already. I am happy to be a part of their lives. Blessings to you Evan, Nicole
