Children Learn What They Live

If lives with criticism, learns to condemn.

If lives with hostility, learns to fight.

If lives with ridicule, learns to be shy.

If lives with shame, learns to feel guilty.

If lives with tolerance, learns to be patient.

If lives with encouragement, learns confidence.

If lives with praise, learns to appreciate.

If lives with fairness, learns justice.

If lives with security, learns to have faith.

If lives with approval, learns to like

If lives with acceptance and friendship,
   learns to find love in the world.
