A Child Learns

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.
