Recently, I have found two poems I am fond of about children.

The first one is as follows:

"孩子" from 《先知》By 紀伯倫(Kahlil Gilbran)黎巴嫩詩人

你的孩子並不是你的。
他們是對生命本身充滿渴望的兒女。
他們是經由你來到這個世界,但不是出自於你。
雖然他們和你在一起,但他們並不屬於你。
你可以給他們你的愛,但不是你的思想,因為他們有自己的思想。
他們的身體居住在你的屋子裡,但是他們的靈魂卻不是。
因為他們的靈魂住在明日之屋,甚至在夢中你也無法前去那兒探訪。
你可以盡力使自己變得像他們,但是盡力不要使他們像你。
因為生命不會倒流,也不會駐足在昨日。
你是弓,經由你射出子女的生命之箭。
神箭手描向無窮遠的標的,以祂的神力將你拉彎把箭射得又快又遠。
任那神箭手將你彎滿,那是一種真正的喜悅。
因為,一如他喜愛飛快的箭,祂也同樣喜愛沉穩的弓。

I enjoy what has been described in this poem very much.

Child is not the imitation of parents.

What we must concern is how to develop his or her potentiality.

The other one is as follows:

“Children Learn What They Live” by Dorothy Law Nolte

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.
If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.
If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.
If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.
If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.
If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.
If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.
If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.
If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.
If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.
If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.
If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.
If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.
If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.
If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.
If children live with fairness, they learn justice.
If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.
If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them.
If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.
