All I ever wanted to know about kids, I learned at PT:
If you love them, they will love you back.
If you praise them, they will strive to do better for encouragement works wonders.
If you set boundaries, they will abide by them or lose privileges because actions have consequences.
If you feed them, they will grow.
As in kindergarten, they learn: Share everything, play fair, and don’t hit playmates, put things back where you get them, clean up your mess. Don’t take things that don’t belong to you, say you are sorry when you hurt someone. Sing, dance, work, and play for a well-balanced life. And when you go into the world, hold hands, look out for traffic, and stick together.
We are the potters and they are the clay. What we mold today is our future tomorrow, which makes me have a finer appreciation for our Sunday School teachers and leaders.
As you attend the PT programs this week, look into the anxious, inquiring eyes of these kids and see if you can pick out tomorrow’s teachers, scientists, attorneys, doctors, etc. They are our future; handle with care.
It does take a village.
God bless all!
