We are here to teach children, but they can teach us too. It would serve us well to adopt these five valuable lessons learned from children.

  1. They have imagination. We lose our imagination as time goes on, and people beat us up. We become fearful of criticism or accusations that we have our head in the clouds. Children are not concerned with what people think; they allow their minds to go to places we are no longer comfortable going. Get your imagination back.
  2. The Faith of a Child. The bible tells us to have the faith of a child. Children don’t question everything. They aren’t filled with doubt. If we could get out of our way long enough to start having faith again, we would be unstoppable.
  3. Children are Confident. You will hear children say, “Look what I can do!” Who hasn’t listened to a determined youngster state, “I can do it myself.” No matter how many tries at tying their shoelaces, they will at it over and over, determined. They don’t doubt they will learn how to tie that lace. They know it’s only a matter of time. Start believing in yourself again.
  4. They Don’t Judge. We become cynical over time and with experience. We compare and make judgments. Sometimes, we have someone all figured out before we have even gotten to know them. Have you ever noticed that children will befriend each other in about 30 seconds? They don’t have any preconceived notions about people. Children love and accept. Be like a child.
  5. Banana In, Bad Mood Out. My German son was visiting with his family. Lennard, who was three years old at the time, was having a hard time with the dinner I served. They had flown from Germany, went through customs, rented a car, and drove over three hours to our house. Lenny was exhausted, and at the table, with English-speaking people, he had not seen in a year. He is happy 99% of the time, but he was having a problem with the dinner, and as Raphi tried to convince him to eat it, Lenny cried and tried to explain to his dad why he should not. (I’m assuming all of this since I don’t speak German). Finally, his mom, Mona, brought him a banana. After one bite, a huge smile spread across his tear-stained little cheeks, and he said (translated to us after his parents stopped laughing), “Banana in, bad mood out!” We tend to stay upset for much longer than the time it takes for a bit of banana. Kids get over things quickly. They forget and move on. So should we.
