#childrensday Things I learnt from my child

Quite often we take kids just as they are. They are often considered as cute cuddly play things and a little human.

We fail to notice them as little humans with heart and mind just as us elders. They do have things to teach us. Yes you heard me right. Things that might help us see the world in a different perspective, a different notion of what we used to perceive is been taught to us through them.

A lot of things which I grew up watching now seem different and a whole new window through what she sees the exact same things as I did. Though it might be the same things to me and my parents, the way it’s been described and being approached by my daughter makes things even more merrier.

A small simple thing like the sun rising or the cock waking us up with a cock a doodle doo might seem like a usual phenomenon to me. But waking up to these things with so much excitement to peep from the windows and look at the hens and chicks and ask why do they make noises that early and who makes them sleep early raises the question in our minds too. Many a times she makes me think deeply on why I didn’t come up with them . Or maybe I was destined to be asked these by my daughter.

Thoughts like why should I not eat with my left hand. The only thought that’s being said is that you eat with your hands why not the left is a question we found it slightly difficult to answer. I strongly believe in not making her change but to accept her as she is.

Making them learn colouring just the way we see things is something like tying up their imaginative horses. Colouring them differently gives their imagination a new perspective. Not only that also a fresh feel to us who are used to seeing things in the same routine way.

How the sun sets Eve and the moon rising up to light up the night sky, was brought another new thing that the sun went home to rest and moon has come to relieve it. Certain things needs to be done only when the sun is out brought up such awe in me.

I really enjoy this beautiful journey of me learning things all the way in a new manner and just to take a break from our routine lives and start thinking their way.

Makes me realize life was much more fun when we were kids.

  1. yes completely agree with you. kids are curious by nature and most often they asked questions that make us think in different way. and we learn a lot in this process. i agree that being with kids give us a chance to relive our childhood and recalled those amazing moments of those golden days.

  2. I agree with you. Kids have a different perspective to look at things and they teach us so many new and simple things. These are the things we tend to overlook in daily life. The best way is to learn and enjoy with them 🙂

  3. Not just curiousity but kids do have amazing risk taking capabilities. They are not scared at all. Recently my son fell of stairs (like 15 of them). For a few days even I wasn’t able to walk up and down the stairs properly but he wanted to go there after one hour of this incident.

  4. Thats the beauty of childhood. with very little experience their approach and way of looking at things is so unique. They are not bound to any stereotyped set up. for them sky canoe green and not always blue. they can also color flowers gray and say that it has dust on it that why it is looking dirty. 🙂

  5. I always wished to relive my childhood, and look I am living it again through the eyes of my little one. It’s curious to her watching a hen laying eggs, pointing to a cow or jumping with extreme joy while she get to see a bird eating the bread she gave to him, these tiny nature experiences make life beautiful but we often forget that, then there comes our kids who teach us the real meaning of life-Mittali

  7. You have captured a childs mind, who is always ready with queries, my kiddo also asks me why this or that. I love to answer them creatively yet with scientific reasons. That’s the beauty of growing up when there minds are thinking, exploring and imagining. nice post

  8. Well expressed. I cant even say how many new things i have learnt after becoming a mother because everyday my toddler will ask me new things and without an answer he will be restless. So while teaching him, I am also learning new things daily.

  9. I agree with you that there is so much to learn from our children. I love the questions my son throws at me and makes me think in a different direction. Wish we could retain some of these qualities we had as children!
