Our children are our teachers. Children teach us every day what it means to be totally immersed in a task without worrying about the world around you. Being 100% present in what you are doing.
They show us our limitations, they push their ideas as far as they will go, making us measure whether we will also stick with our convictions right to the end.
They are a fantastic mirror, making us face up to our inconsistencies, and can make us fly off the handle all too easily.
Our children teach us about unconditional love, not to mention forgiveness. Even when we’ve told them off, they are indulgent and can show us just with a cuddle that they have forgiven us for losing our temper and that they still love us.
Anyone who has contact with a child will confirm that that child has touched them in their inner being, helped them progress or made them aware of something essential.
The wisdom of the child lies not in knowing but in being.
So, why don’t we go back and connect with our inner child and listen to their advice?
