LESSONS FROM A NOW 14 MONTH OLD

All children are teachers and all adults are their students.

That said, lessons from a 14 month old

–Try anything and everything. 
  If you like it, do it again and again and again and enjoy the learning

–Take everything in (the mouth usually)
  If you don’t like it, spit it out
  Immediately

–Let people know what you like and don’t like
  Immediately and loudly

–Create an environment that works for you
  Your toys, your way

–When bored, stop what you are doing and walk away
  Let something else draw you

–There are no obstacles
  Push, shove, scream for help or walk right over them

–Look before you leap
  Think twice about who you want to hug

–Do it yourself, shake off unwanted help
   Eat your carrot your way

–Imitate, imitate, imitate
  Only people and things that you love

–Work hard to understand how things work
  Let go when it doesn’t

–Be exuberant whenever you want to
  There is no “no,no” for joy

–Be an innocent learner
  Say yes until you are sure of “no”

Plow through life with a smile
  All doors will open
