We can learn so many things from the eyes and mind of a baby and toddler. We, as adults and parents, think that we are the teachers of our children. But have you ever stopped to think what children teach us?
While we try to teach our children all about life, children teach us what life is all about.
Children are in fact the teachers of our life and can teach us the greatest lessons we'll ever learn. Take the time to watch and listen because you will learn a lot about life from these wonderful little people.
Children teach us to laugh and have fun and truly enjoy life to the fullest.
Children are open and honest. Yes, those funny things they say can be embarrassing but children are not scared or intimidated to say it "like it is."
Our babies and toddlers can disrupt our plans and our sleep, and they can certainly try our patience from time-to-time. However, they also bring out of us the greatest love we will ever know.
If you listen, watch and learn you can gain many life's lessons from your children. Let your new baby and/or toddler teach you what life and love is all about! They will be the greatest lessons you will ever learn!
In another aspect, one of the greatest things you as a parent can do is expose your baby and toddler to books. Books encourage learning and language skills and imagination. We have a great selection of baby book gift baskets, perfect for delighting the new baby and toddler.
