What Can We Learn From Our Children?

“Live with children long enough and beauty, love, innocence, play, pain, and death, everything appears in a new light …”

—Piero Ferrucci, author and psychotherapist

 

As we mature from children into adults we tend to conform to societal rules that shape our behaviour and outlook on life. Sometimes these rules also suppress our true personalities. Through observing and interacting with our own children it is possible to reawaken our childhood selves.

 

Imagination

Children have an incredible ability to fantasize. They attach sacred or mythical significance to ordinary things through what is termed “magical thinking.” As adults we are more rational, but we can learn to tap into that kind of thinking, while remaining reasonable, and experience childlike wonder at the world.

 

Spontaneity

According to the French philosopher and social psychologist Henri Wallon (1879-1962), young children are largely spontaneous in their behaviour and lack self-control. While it is important for adults to control their actions and words, it can also be a joy to be able to genuinely express yourself with spontaneity and without shame. Think how much more exciting music, dance and other art forms are when they include an element of spontaneity.

 

 

Creativity 

Take that newly rekindled imagination and spontaneity and do something productive with it. Children are always drawing, sculpting and inventing songs, dances and stories. Follow suit!

 

Bouncing Back

Ever seen a kid fall down hard during a game and cry hysterically, only to be back laughing and playing within minutes? Children are also very forgiving, even after emotional arguments with friends and family members.

 

Optimism 

Children hope for the best and actually think it will happen! Though it hurts to be disappointed when things don’t work out the way you plan, maintaining a positive attitude is half the struggle when it comes to achieving your goals.
