Thinking out of the box
As the child explores the world they have so many things they don’t know or don’t understand yet. They create their own explanations for everything, they use their imagination all the time, creates whole new worlds just while playing with friends. Child’s way of thinking is unique, as they don’t follow certain rules or standards, simply because they don’t know them yet.Simple riddle, which will be solved in a minute by a 5 year-old child, can take hours for an adult person to solve. An adult person has many thinking patterns and sometimes it is very hard to get rid of them. We should learn from children how to be creative and how to think out of the box.
Every child is so interested in everything that is going on around him. He has a strong desire to learn, to find out the reason, to explore. The world around us is endless and we should follow children’s example and never stop looking for something else to learn about, as it makes our life so much fuller and richer.
Having a great time
Children use what they have around and always find something to do. They use sticks and old blankets to build an Indian house, create a rocket from an old box, use old sheets to play ghosts. Of course, they always want to have a new toy they have seen in the shop, but they will still have great time creating toys out of the materials they have around them. We should learn from children how to appreciate what we have and how to use it in unexpected ways.
Being honest and sincere
Children say exactly what they are thinking, they cry when they are sad and laugh when they are happy. They say how much they love you or how offended they are by someone. They trust others and expect to be trusted. We should learn from children how to be honest with ourselves and with each other and how to be open to the world.
One of the secrets of happiness of every child is noticing what is going on around him. They look attentively and see great things happening around, they listen carefully and hear amazing sounds, they touche life and feel how it can hurt you sometimes, but how wonderful it is at the same time. As we grow older we often lose this ability to notice how many great things happen in our lives every day. We should learn from the children to see, hear and feel the beauty of our life and to appreciate it.
