I’d Rather Have Habits Than Clothes,
For that’s where my intellect shows.
And as for my hair,
Do you think I should care
To comb it at night with my toes?

I’d rather have ears than a nose,
I’d rather have fingers than toes,
But as for my hair:
I’m glad it’s all there;
I’ll be awfully sad when it goes.

I wish that my Room had a Floor;
I don’t so much care for a Door,
But this walking around
Without touching the ground
Is getting to be quite a bore!

Spending time with children, whether they are related to you or not, is always rewarding and to that list we would like to add a few more lessons we as adults should all learn from children.

Paulo Coelho said that “A child can teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.” Here are the three things children have taught me:

1. Be fearless: Hanging out with my little brother the other day, I realized how resilient kids really are. To them, it doesn’t matter how many times they trip and fall. Seconds later they are up and running. Unlike adults, who are ready to give up at a slightest encumbrance, kids don’t dwell on the pain and disappointment – they only focus on their goals.

2. Give from…

All About Kids & Parenting

whisperToo often, child abuse continues because kids are coerced into keeping problems a secret. This article is from The Kidpower Book for Caring Adults: Personal Safety, Self-Protection, Confidence, and Advocacy for Young People, a tremendous resource for protecting children from abuse, bullying, kidnapping, and other violence.

One of Kidpower’s boundary rules is that “Problems should not be secret!” To help prevent potential problems, we also tell children that, “Touch should not be a secret. And presents someone gives you or games someone asks you to play should not be a secret.”

Often during our adult education programs, parents approach us and ask about how to explain to their children what kinds of secrets are okay to keep and what are not. As one puzzled father said, “My seven-year-old daughter ‘Pricilla’ has so much fun whispering about harmless secrets with her friends. If I tell her not to keep any…

1. Kid Safety in the Kitchen
Toddlers gravitate to the kitchen; after all, that’s where families spend much of their time. Cook on the back burners and turn pot handles away so they aren’t in reach. Drink hot beverages out of spill-proof and unbreakable travel mugs to avoid burns. Never leave dangling cords; unplug items when not in use and store, and those that are used, keep cords wraped tightly with a twist tie. Store cleaning fluids in locked cabinet out of sight and temptation. Don’t allow access into pantry.
2. Kid Safety in the Bathroom
For safety and to avoid expensive plumber calls, keep the toilet lid down and locked when not in use. It’s a good idea to limit access to the bathroom with a safety gate or lock, if practical. There is too much temptation. Never leave medications around; keep locked and out of reach. Also keep items like mouthwash, toothpaste and other kid hazard items away. Plungers can make a fun (if not disgusting) play toy to a toddler; don’t leave one by the toilet. Always drain the bathtub.
3. Kid Safety in the Family Room
With kids, when is there ever not things on the floor? Be on constant guard for small toys and objects that can be choking hazards, batteries, coins, marbles, and pieces of toys from older siblings (wheels, doll shoes, etc.) Keep elecrical cords out of reach and use outlet covers. Child-proof window treatment cords. Secure televisions and other electronic equipment to avoid any potential for tipping over on a child. Use safety gates on stairs. Remove temptations from tabletops.
4. Kid Safety in the Bedroom
Lamps, flowing curtains or drapes, area rugs, and even candles are items that add to the ambiance of a master bedroom but could prove to be a danger zone for young children. Cutesy table lamps and rocking chairs that were so precious in an infant’s room can now spell disaster if a toddler starts standing in the chair or can reach for the lamp and remove it from its stand. Be sure pictures are mounted solidly on the walls and that bookcases are also affixed to the walls, if possible.
5. Kid Safety in the Yard
Be sure to limit access to outside with locks out of reach of a curious tot. Backyard swing sets and play areas are wonderful, but make sure they are safe by having a soft surface underneath. If your yard is fenced, be sure that is locked as well. Always enclose pools, ponds or hot tubs and put a safety fence between any water source and the house. Keep kiddie pools drained when not in use. Keep power tools and garden equipment safe and out of reach; the same holds true for insecticides.
6. Kid Safety in the Car
Be sure you have your child’s car seat installed correctly and in accordance with safety regulations. Utilize a booster seat for as long as child needs one for height and weight factors (which may be longer than your child wants). Be sure that kids cannot open a door or window from their seat (utilize child locks, as needed). The sun shades help with comfort for toddlers on car trips. Set safety practices with the opening/shutting of car doors to avoid smashed finger injuries.
7. Kid Safety at Others’ Homes
Your house may be toddler proof, but neighbors and relatives may not have the need. That means parents must be on particular guard when visiting others’ homes for safety. Medicine cabinets, drawers, and other “unsafe” areas may be a temptation to toddlers, and it only takes a moment to get into danger. If possible, bring entertainment for your toddler and designate a single “safe room” for your youngster to stay in. And, always accompany your toddler to the bathroom (even if potty-trained).
8. Kid Safety Out and About
Parents greatest safety fears can sometimes be when walking with youngsters to and from stores, among parked cars, and in crowded situations–and with good reason. Toddlers are prone to darting around and insistent on walking independently. Kids should be told rules of hand-holding and other safety measures, and parents should enforce those rules at all costs. In crowded stores, consider tying a balloon on a wrist so you can see your youngster in case of an accidental separation.
9. Kid Safety and Toys
Require that your youngster wear a bike helmet and other safety gear. Create/buy a safety flag on a bike, big wheel or other toy when used outdoors so you can distinguish your child and his location at a glance. Carefully consider toys like trampolines, spinning toys, scooters, bouncing balls, in-line skates, and other popular items that can be fun but also potentially dangerous. If you do buy such an item, be sure to follow safety recommendations and supervise your child’s use closely.
10. Kid Safety and Sports
More and more parents are placing their toddler-aged children into sports for exercise and to learn fundamentals of soccer, gymnastics, baseball, basketball, and cheer. Age-appropriate programs can be a great outlet for a youngster’s energy and provide exercise and coordination activities as well. But, beware of programs that don’t take a young child’s limitations into account, or else injuries can occur.
