I chose this prompt because my children have taught me many things.
Things a child can teach you!:
1. How to relax and just have fun! All of my children have helped me learn to just have fun. To not be so uptight about everything. They bring out the kid in me and we love playing and just having a blast!
2. To be who you are and not care if other people like you or not. My son has really helped teach me this because I have never seen him try to conform to anyone else's ideal of what he should be. He is who he is and if that means he's a goofball then thats that. 3. That everybody deserves love and respect. My son is a caring loving little man and I am proud to call him my son. He is kind to all of his class mates. There is one boy in particular that I noticed on the field trip this past Friday who was being teased by other class mates. My son is so sweet he has befriended that boy even if it means he gets picked on as well.
4. PATIENCE! All of my kids have taught me patience. They all do things that irritate me but I just have to take a step back and really think about what I am so upset about. I have learned I need to have patience as they are just that, kids, and they are growing and learning.
