5Waysinwhich
worryingaboutwhatotherpeoplethink1
When you are a kid, anything goes! There’s
absolutely no rule that tells you that you
cannot ask more than 5 questions at a
time, or that you cannot wear a mask
or crown to the mall, or that you cannot
wear one polka dot sock and one blue
sock.
Children are proud of the things that they
do and they couldn’t care less about who
catches them in their ‘silly’ moments.
As adults, on the other hand,
we tend to get embarrassed
and shy when people catch us
doing the silly (and harmless)
things that make us happy.
Without realising it, we’re
constantly worried about
what other people think of
us.
When doing the things that we love, we should follow our children’s
examples, and be less concerned about other people’s opinions of us.
usingYourimagination 2
Children’s
imaginations are
not limited by logic.
They don’t care
what’s real – if it is
in their mind, it’s
possible!
In adult life, you have to be able to think
things through logically in order for them to
make sense.
We should adopt a More Imaginative
mindset – especially when it comes to
pursuing our bigger goals. We should
train our minds to believe that anything
is possible.
Children’s imaginations are often mind
blowing!
Exploringtheworldaroundyou3
Most of the time, children
are excited about life.
They ask millions of questions and they
can run around for hours. They are just
natural adventure seekers.
Adults, on the other hand, tend to be
less inquisitive and more oblivious to the
wonders of the world around them.
We should realise that children see the
world through fresh eyes, which means
that they can help us to notice the small
things that make life meaningful, but
that we so often overlook, or take for
granted.

WhoYoumakeFriendswith
As scary as this
may sound,
children will
befriend anyone
who gives them
attention and
seems friendly.
As adults we tend to know that not
everyone has our best interests at heart.
Sometimes, this means that we don’t make
an effort to interact with those around
us. Instead of striking up a conversation
with the person behind us in a queue, for
example, we’re much more likely to turn to
our smartphones.
Yes, we should teach our children about
the dangers of talking to and befriending
strangers, but we should also learn that
it’s sometimes beneficial to interact with
others as we go about our daily lives.
					 Toddlers, for
example, would often quite happily go up to
a stranger in the grocery store and ask why
he or she is buying one flavour of ice cream
instead of another.
MakingaMessofThings5
Getting dirty is one of the
most enjoyable things to do
	 when you are a child.
	 They love getting their
		 hands and clothes
		dirty.
when last have you had the chance to go to
the beach and build a sand castle? Or when
last have you driven to a park and enjoyed
going down the slide?
As adults, we always feel that we have
‘more important’ things to do.
We can learn a thing or two from children
about the importance of taking the time
to do what we enjoy.
