Be very careful what you say, how you act towards others and the presence you portray around children.
Everything you say is absorbed, everything you do is mimicked and everything you think is written in your expressions which are picked up by children in this sensitive period of their lives.
Later as their personality emerges, it will be a combination of the experiences they have had as a child. If you are inclusive of all, considerate, calm and loving. Then you’ve done your part, there may be other environmental factors at play but as a teacher or a parent, you’ve done your part to set the foundations for a well rounded child.
“A child’s mind is like a wardrobe door open during a spring clean. You only put into the wardrobe what you will want to use later, anything that doesn’t need to be kept for later use can be discarded.
At a later date when you need kindness, care, compassion or love, it’s all hanging up ready to be used. You can throw anger, fury, hatred and exclusion in the trash can where they belong
Everything you say is kept and will later be worn by your child, be careful what you hang in the wardrobe!”
