Having patience with children is easier than you think. One of the many beauties of life is experiencing the true joy of children. Children are surrounded with a natural light and have a special way about them.
They endeavor to laugh, play and explore their surroundings as well as the adults nearby. When I am with them, I am patient as I focus my attention on them.
I embrace their boundless life and energy, allow them their activities and chatter, and avoid seeing them as interruptions or annoyances.
Being patient with children means I accept them. I allow them to be the cheerful, active little beings they are. I see children as yet untouched by the complexities of life – free, in a sense, to just be themselves.
My patience with children makes my life easier. I realize I have no real reason to be irritated or frustrated when I am in the presence of children. By understanding them, I am uplifted when I am around them.
Today, I celebrate children as I seek to gain more knowledge about them. Learning about the way they think and explore the world around them at different ages is fascinating and increases my patience and ability to understand them.
