Ten Lessons We Can Learn From Children

We were all young(er) once. We all went through school and played with toys and learned to take our first steps as kids. And though we may be older and (supposedly!) wiser, there’s still a lot we can learn from children. Here’s a list of a few.

Report

1. Creativity

Everyone knows that children have very active imaginations. Sometimes it’s a good thing, and sometimes it’s bad – especially when they give themselves nightmares. But when they put their minds to work, they can create something beautiful. 

2. Kindness

Children have a very loving nature. They’re not spoilt by the jealousy and anger that seems to appear as we grow up. The majority of kids give their love to everything, from people to animals and the environment. We could learn a thing or too from that behaviour alone.

3. Fun

Kids just wanna have fun. Fact. And they know how to as well. We should take a leaf out of their book – having fun is what makes life worth living. Every now and then it’s perfectly okay to let your hair down and go wild.
"Kids: they dance before they learn there is anything that isn't music." - William Stafford​

4. Chattiness

One of the things we most admire in children is their ability to converse with anyone. While we all struggle to keep our social status balanced and worrying about awkward silences on first dates, children are out there asking anyone who will listen what they’re favourite color is. Chattiness is natural to us, and we should stop worrying so much about everything we say and do the same.

5. Open-mindedness 

If you ever ask a child their opinion on gay marriage, they’ll say there’s no issue. Because kids have an open mind. Perhaps if we were as open as they were, the world would be a little more peaceful.

6. Impulsivity 

Planning is good. Sometimes. But when we plan too much our lives can become just one big schedule to follow. Kids know where it’s at – they act first and think later. It’s not advisable in every situation, but no one needs to be in control all the time!

7. Confidence

Children always seem to know exactly what they’re doing, why they’re doing it, and they believe in themselves. If we can work on something in particular, it should be our confidence. Everything else follows afterwards. 

8. Losing control 

Kids can go from crying to laughing in the space of a minute. They allow their emotions to completely take over them. Adults are very good at keeping their feelings to themselves, but an outlet is sometimes the only way to make yourself feel better. It seems to work for kids – why not us too?

9. Honesty

Children will always be the first to tell you exactly what’s on their mind. In particular, what we’re doing to annoy them. If we were all as honest as kids, it could be chaos, but that’s not to say we shouldn’t try and be more open and speak our minds. 

10. How to make a Christmas list

When Christmas comes around, and people ask you what you want, nine times out of ten, the answer will be something vague, or something like “I don’t know” or “nothing, really.” If kids can teach us one thing, it’s how to make an epic Christmas list. What’s their secret?
