I copied and pasted from an old e-mail I received from one of those spam chain e-mails.
And I’ve recently actually found this quote on my stack of notes.
The scanned copy can be found here
Children Learn What They Learn
If a child lives with criticism, they learn to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility, they learn to fight.
If a child lives with ridicule, they learn to be shy.
If a child lives with shame, they learn to feel guilty.
If a child lives with tolerance, they learn be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement, they learn confidence.
If a child lives with praise, they learn appreciate.
If a child lives with fairness, they learn justice.
If a child lives with security, they learn to have faith.
If a child lives with approval, they learn to like themselves.
If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, they learn to find love in the world.
