3 - Kids say the Darnest Things: Ask THEM for Advice!

I love children and the enthusiasm they bring into life! So pure, so joyous and carefree… We as adult are always telling them what to do. "No you can’t do this, no you can’t do that."  No wonder as we grow older, we are fearful of some of the things we want to achieve in life.

Children are free spirit and they do and say things like it is, fearless.  If they want that piece of chocolate, they will find a way. We as adults need to learn to be like them. A a little less fearful & a little more carefree, then maybe we’ll go for that piece of chocolate we’ve always wanted.

Have you ever ask a child to tell you a story or give you an advice? You’ll be surprised by what they’ll have to say.

Here’s a conversation I had with my 4 year old niece after work one day:

Nicole: “Auntie, you’re sooOOooo adorable!!”
Me:  “Why thank you Nicole.”  (blushing with a big smile)
Nicole: “Auntie, what does adorable mean?”
