Learn from your child

“Another benefit I get from having the kids is that they teach me a lot. Kids have got such a simple philosophy of life: they tell you what’s important and what’s not important. It’s like the Bible says, ‘Unless you become like a child …’ – that means simplicity. I need to be reminded of it and kids do that.” – Peter Newman, environmental scientist, author and educator.
