Mirrors

100_6447Really listen to what adults around you say about children — not their own, but children in general.

Many adults think very little of children and their abilities and motives —

possibly because they think very little of themselves and their own abilities and motives.

They transfer their negative beliefs on children.

If adults thought of themselves as strong, capable learners who enjoy challenges and want to contribute,

presumably they would see children the same way.
