Excerpts from a poem by Dorothy Law Nolte

  • If a Child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn
  • If a child live with hostility, he learns to fight
  • If a child lives with shame he learns to feel guilty
  • If a child lives with encouragement, he learns to be confident
  • If a child lives with acceptance, he learns to love
  • If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith in himself and those about him.
  • If a child lives with approval he learns to like himself
  • If a child lives with sharing he learns generosity.

With what is your child living?
