What we can learn from our children

We teach and educate our children according to our ideas. But what would happen if we, the adults, once learned from them? Would a childlike perspective be an advantage, even in everyday working life?

"I will be superstar". "I want to become an astronaut"

Children have imagination. Most of the time, they tackle things when they seem unrealistic.

In any case, they are doing something. They practice doing others a favor and study hard for their goals, at least for the moment.

Some, however, put their early childhood ideas into action on a permanent basis. The adults, on the other hand, first see the problems and obstacles.

So are there any things that children have ahead of us and that we can (re) learn?

For sure, adults can take a look at the childrens' innocence. The little ones not only look at their world with different eyes, they often see it more holistically.

Childlike spontaneity and creativity

For example, they paint pictures that tell entire stories. These can be simple cloud formations or faces. They not only see the obvious, but look at the motives from different perspectives.

If you look at a famous painting, for example by Picasso, what can you recognize?

Also, all children are somehow artists. They are creative, they are always doing something, painting fantasy figures and inventing new things. Not only do they use items according to their intended purpose, they also make completely new products using their imagination.

Also in terms of new word creations, children are extremely creative. Maybe they are the better copywriters?

The children of today are also fit in the digital sector. You can find your way around tablets or smartphones before they even learn how to read or write.

You do not know fear or insurmountable obstacles. Also, do not worry about making mistakes. Not yet. As a result, they learn intuitively and quickly.

Children are honest and direct

And one more property is owned by children, some of whom have lost the adults. They are honest and direct. If a child sees a big belly, then it will probably say freely: "But you have a big belly".

This statement is certainly not meant offensive. It is only a statement. But if the little ones say something really nice, adults often do not take it so seriously or consider it. The reason: The views of adults have changed in some cases.

Everything is better with a smile

But the most important thing many adults have forgotten is laughter. Scientists found that children laugh about 400 times a day. On the other hand, adults laugh on average between 15 and 20 times a day. Who is happier with that?

Because, who laughs often, spreads a good mood. And such would certainly also improve your own perspective and the working atmosphere and promote your own performance.
