What could our children teach us?

A child can teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.

Paulo Coelho

Children can teach us many things, if we are willing to learn. My children have taught me the meaning of unconditional love, they have taught me that I’m stronger than I thought and I have more energy than I could ever imagine.

I love when they  laugh out loud because I can feel that they are enjoying what they are doing and it amazes me how sometimes they can have fun for hours doing or playing things I would have never imagined.

And definitely there’s no one who can beat children at asking and often demanding what they want. My oldest son is very skilled at asking what he wants, he uses salesman techniques (That I don’t know how he learned them). When he wants to do something many times he gives me two options (the technique that also teaches us parents to get our children to do what we want), for example a couple of years ago he wanted to put a tent in the middle of the living room and of course I was not convinced that that was a good idea.

Then he says, ‘Mom, where do you want me to put the tent on this side or the other,’ He never asked permission to put it on, I was so surprised that the tent stayed for a month in the living room. And the youngest is not far behind, a few days ago my husband went out to do some errands, my oldest son and the youngest one accompanied him. Returning, my husband thought of bringing a package of  ice cream frozen cookie to our middle son, who was accompanying me, and also to share with everyone.

The youngest reminded my husband about 100 times that since he had accompanied him to do the errand, he had won a special dessert with ice cream and oreo cookies, of course in addition to the ice cream cookie that he was going to receive at home. So if you ask me Do kids know how to demand with all their might what they want? The answer is a resounding YES and I hope my sons will remember me this important lesson, because we adults sometimes forget to ask and fight for what we want.
