CHILDREN LEARN WHAT THEY LIVE

“Children Learn What They Live”

- Dorothy Law Nolte



Not In This House!


If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.

If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.

If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.

If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.



In The House Every Day!


If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.

If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.

If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.

If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.

If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.
