Editors Favorite Quote about Children:
"Kids learn to navigate the adult world through constant observation and application of what they learn."
Michal Stawicki, Simplify Your Pursuit of Success

Editor's Thoughts: Michal's quote is one that we often forget as adults. Children are constantly watching and listening to the adults in their lives (even when we think they are not). It starts when they are babies, the expressions and our behavior toward them when they cry - teaches them. Then as they become toddlers you can really see how they imitate those around them. It is amazing to watch the development of a child, as they take on their own personality yet they also pick up the personality of those around them. My grandson demonstrated this. He is three years old. He has never been a hitter. But he started daycare and within a week had picked up the habit of hitting others. His mother was concerned and when she spoke to the daycare worker they said they had one child they were having issues with because of hitting. Our grandson picked up the behavior by watching those around him. As adults we have to be aware that what we do, what we say, and how we say it, as it is also being picked up by the children we are close to.
