“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.”
Expectations lay the groundwork for emotional anticipation and being creative and flexible is an attribute of leadership. Curiosity is a buffer to despairing and taking into account the concepts of a past, present, and future foster a bigger picture perspective. Children are naturally inquisitive and creative. We should encourage and inspire them to continue asking questions and self-evaluate how to recognize what they are thinking and feeling as well as when they are experiencing stress to know when to apply self-care and deliberate individualistic goals. If we listen to our children and model what it means to express compassion and respect, they are more likely to grow up treating each other in a similar fashion.
