Children Learn What They Live


If a child lives with criticism,
He learns to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility,
He learns to fight.
If a child lives with ridicule,
He learns to be shy.
If a child lives with shame, 
He learns to feel guilty.
   If a child lives with tolerance, 
He learns to be patient.
        If a child lives with encouragement, 
He learns confidence.
If a child lives with praise, 
He learns to appreciate.
If a child lives with fairness,
He learns justice.
If a child lives with security,
He learns to have faith.
If a child lives with approval, 
He learns to like himself.
If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, 
He learns to find love in the world.




A good teacher is like a candle -
it consumes itself to light the way for others.
Unknown quotes

The chief cause of human errors is to be found
