WE CAN LEARN FROM CHILDREN

Children are smarter than adults, if they want to say hi, they tell you, they write to you, they call you … simply because they are real. How many times have you done what you felt, simply because it was right to do it; then you realized that being a child in a world complicated by walls and borders is really difficult and so you stopped.
CHILDREN KNOW HOW TO LIVE IN THE PRESENT:

if you have ever talked to a child on the phone and to find out how he is and what he is doing, you have asked him "Love, what are you doing?" (meaning: you are playing, you are doing your homework, etc.), he will most likely reply: “I'm talking to you on the phone!”.

CHILDREN ARE SPONTANEOUS:
children do not know judgments, spite, resentments and diatribes, they always tell you in the face what they feel and do not come up with ways of behaving different from those manifested by their own nature.

They can't keep up with the cumbersome tricks of adults. For example, if the family goes on an appointment together and arrives late due to a slowness in the preparations, probably, since we adults often make up excuses for fear of being judged, the adult would say: "Sorry, we're a little bit too late. delay, there was a lot of traffic ”.

The child, on the other hand, if left free to express himself, replies with the truth: “Mother couldn't find anything she liked to wear!”.

CHILDREN TRUST IN THEIR SKILLS:
When children are born they cannot do anything: they cannot write, read, speak, draw, count, dance, etc. yet they immediately try to learn all these new things without being afraid of not succeeding. This is because children have confidence in their abilities and when it comes to trying to do something new they certainly don't think “I can't do it” or “if I do it for sure I fail” but they just try. And the beauty is that they do it regardless of the opinions of others.
DO NOT HOLD A GRUDGE:
Even children sometimes lose their temper when they argue with other children or with their parents, but it takes very little to make them smile again. For the child, resentment is an unknown feeling because he has the ability to forgive and instantly forget a wrong he has suffered; adults, after an argument, are capable of holding their faces for days, of breaking up a relationship and of mulling over it, only hurting themselves.
Here, in my opinion, schools should be born in which children are the teachers and adults, sitting in their desks, re-learn how to behave in life to be happy. There could be lessons on enthusiasm, fantasy and imagination, on how to enjoy nothing and lots of games and smiles.

    How beautiful
    To live without a heart filled with resentment
    To enjoy life as a child.

    Daily i experience their profound sense of honesty
    As in brutally honest
    One is knocked off one’s feet.

    Accepting lessons from a child is the beginning of play and being reschooled again.

    Oh but am I exhausted at the day, happy there is no night school
