The Week About Children

 
 
 
 

As a especial feature for this theme "Kinder sind Zukunft",
(rough translation: Children Are Our Future)
I would like to post this poem about children. I saw this poem
for the first time during the World Conference on Women in Beijing in
1995 and since then, it has been sent, posted, forwarded in the
cyberspace. Author is Unknown.

CHILDREN LEARN WHAT THEY LIVE

If children live with CRITICISM
They learn to CONDEMN
If children live with HOSTILITY
They learn to FIGHT
If children live with RIDICULE
They learn to BE SHY
If children live with SHAME
They learn to FEEL GUILTY

If children live with TOLERANCE
They learn to BE PATIENT
If children live with ENCOURAGEMENT
They learn to HAVE CONFIDENCE
If children live with PRAISE
They learn to APPRECIATE
If children live with FAIRNESS
They learn JUSTICE
If children live with SECURITY
They learn to HAVE FAITH
If children live with APPROVAL
They learn to LIKE THEMSELVES
If children live with ACCEPTANCE and FRIENDSHIP
They learn to FIND LOVE IN THE WORLD.

Isa pang tula
Ang laki sa layaw

Hi Marlou. It's a pleasure to meet you. Thanks for visiting my blog. It's always nice to meet someone new.

Thanks for sharing this lovely poem. We should really make sure that we let our children grow up in the best possible environment.

original version of this poem is from florante at laura. funny version goes like this:

ang laki sa layaw karaniwa'y hubad
mabuti pa si tarzan may kaprasong bahag
sa paglalambitin nahulog ang bahag
ay naku po, Diyos ko! ang itim ng ba_ag...

cheers,
marie
