Children Watch, Listen & Learn What They Live

Ever wonder why people are the way they are or where they learned to be a certain way? We cannot discount the influence of upbringing, peers, environment and genetics. Although we have very limited or no control over some of the things that shape our children, we can do our part to make a positive difference. We teach them by the way we treat them and the way we treat others. We can lead them by our example and how we react and cope with people and situations. It is empowering and encouraging to know that children can learn love and happiness when it is manifested in our own lives. They watch… they listen… they learn…they copy, and it becomes what they live. The greatest reward we can ever receive as parents is seeing them live out the beautiful qualities of truly happy and healthy children who grow up to make their own positive contributions to the world and the lives of others.

Below is a very beautiful poem that can inspire us all to do our part in being a positive influence in the lives of children as they learn what they live. May we guide them and help them learn from the good and the bad, inspire them to walk in integrity, live with security, confidence and love, and be the best they can be!

Children Learn What They Live

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 praise,
He learns to appreciate.
If a child lives with encouragement,
He learns confidence.
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.

~Dorothy Law Nolte Ph.D.

If you want your children to improve, let them overhear the nice things you say about them to others. ~Haim Ginott

Kids go where there is excitement. They stay where there is love. ~Zig Ziglar

Live so that when your children think of fairness and integrity, they think of you. ~H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

When did we ever get the crazy idea that in order to make children do better, first we must make them feel worse? Think of the last time you felt humiliated or treated unfairly. Did you feel like cooperating or doing better? ~Jane Nelson

Hindi poetry losses Its Place

Abdul Rahim Khan-I-Khana, Jaishankar Prasad, Gopal Das Neeraj, Ashok Chakradhar- may be you have not heard these names. Many of us have very little or even no knowledge about the legendary Hindi poets. They are the some of them who make India proud with the beauty of their Hindi poetry. Hindi is our national language but still very few Indian loves to speak and read Hindi. Hardly, we see any Hindi poetry lover in our surrounding. Hindi poetry and even Hindi language is lagging behind. It’s only we the Indian who are responsible for this. Being our national language Hindi is not getting its place in the heart and minds of people. You can take example of any government or private organization, everywhere English is giving the priority.

Still there is little place left for Hindi in our nation but if this will continue, the coming generation is not able to taste the beauty of Hindi poetry anymore. In school, children were encouraged to study English poetry or literature and due to that somewhere Hindi is losing its importance in the hearts of people. Its not that Hindi is ignored in private institutions but same the case in government institutes. The government also doesn’t boost the people and children towards our national language.

We go to any organization we were forced to converse in English in any field we go into. On seeing this criterion parents also want to encourage their children towards the activities that focus on English language and not Hindi. Because of showing lack of priority the Hindi language, Hindi poetry suffers in our country. If we don’t show the interest towards the Hindi poetry and give it enough respect then who are going to do this for us.

People are losing interest in reading Hindi poems as they have mind set that English poetry is far better than Hindi poetry. Also, they find it boring to read as they have no keen interest in reading the words written in their own national language. All this happen because they have no habit in reading Hindi much. The great Hindi poets are losing their respects in the eyes of people. Their work has been not given that credit which it actually deserves.

If this will continue there will be lack in readership of Hindi language but also we lack in poets and writer who write in Hindi. Hindi is more expressive language then English and thus Hindi poetry is one the most meaningful thing to read which contains feelings. It all depends upon the people and their mind set what they want to read and write. Although one can best come up in expression and speech when he or she writes in their mother language that is Hindi.
