Children Live What They Learn

Recently, one of my friends, who also happens to be an Alluem Mom-to-Be, had a most wonderful Baby Shower. Her mother-in-law had framed a poem written by Dorothy Law Nolte that I instantly loved and wanted to share here:

Children Learn What They Live

If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn.

If a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight.

If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy.

If a child lives with shame, he learns to feel guilty.

If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient.

If a child lives with encouragement, he learns confidence.

If a child lives with praise, he learns to appreciate.

If a child lives with fairness, he learns justice.

If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith.

If a child lives with approval, he learns to like himself.
If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, he learns to find love in the world.

We must be so careful what we teach our children, intentionally or unintentionally. They pick up on everything and while none of us are perfect, as long as we strive to do the best we can and live in the present, so will our children. This poem was a great find! Thanks, Michelle! We can't wait to have you back with your new bundle of joy at Baby & Me Yoga!

Baby & Me Yoga is a 6 week session postpartum class for mothers with babies from 6 weeks to 12 months old that starts May 1st. It's a wonderful transition from the pre-natal class, which is held on Saturdays, 11:15am-12;30pm. Baby & Me enables mothers to continue their yoga practice and foster an ongoing maternal sense of community. A typical class emphasizes postures designed to tone the abdominal muscles and realign the inner body. Special attention will be given to post-pregnancy recovery due to epidurals or Caesarean sections. Most importantly, Baby & Me classes are a great way for mothers to connect physically, emotionally, and spiritually with their babies.
