Day Five : Hook ‘Em With a Quote
Don’t limit a child to your own learning, for she was born in another time.
___ Rabindranath Tagore
I read a lot of quotes of many authors, this one awakened my mind. The poet is right to caution us how we ought to teach our kids.
Two days ago I saw a boy hardly four was busy with his cell phone, though I don’t know whether he was writing a story or playing a game, what amazed me is the fact he knew how to use it.
I compared him to me, when I was that little, I doubt I knew the word telephone, today I watch and see little kids around me with a telephone, either talking with his friend or doing a crossword puzzle.
We still can guide the little ones about the world of today, but it’s better to let them learn their daily studies as they please, I suppose this is what the poet is telling us to do!
Thank you for sharing this powerful quote from Tagore.
Let us pray that our children realize higher ideals than we have, opening up, and creating an even brighter future for all of humankind!
All good wishes,
Thank you, I agree with your comment, we’d love our kids to have a brighter future. 🙂
