Dorothy Law Nolte writes:

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 encouragement, he learns to be confident,

If a child lives with praise, he learns to appreciate,

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.

Adults; whether as mother or father or aunty or uncle or teacher or guardian etc, must be conscious of what should be done and what should not be done around our children, because we directly and indirectly shape their lives
