Child behave Mature; Parents behave Childish

A famous proverb saying, “God’s and Children’s nature is same.”  Apart from the three special characters of children (how to be busy always; how to be happy without reason; how to demand for things), we can add another one as they are out of box thinkers, because they are not constrained by time and boundaries.  While either be a neighbor or a classmate, small skirmish often arises but no world organization needs to compromise them. No one have a able to scales what the child’s world really has.

Recently, one of my friend was ambling around the Summer Palace in Beijing, with his beloved family. To his surprise, many loveable Chinese parents had been taken photos with his two year old child whom couldn’t understand anything but enjoying. Matured human always hesitate to talk with strangers especially foreigners, but no barrier for this overwhelmed child. Nothing could stop her curiosity or inquisitiveness to reach foreigners lap and make a pose for photos. Instantly smile has played a major role between them as a language.

While demanding for toys, they are weeping as if their world is comes to an end. If they realized it would not be work, and then simply move to next. No place for stagnate in their un-scribble mind. Then why educated men/women have stagnated somewhere?

If parents allows, we will know, how kids (from different corner) are playing together in their own world with flexible rules. But, some parents or social system had purposefully altered their kids mind by saying purported hearsay.   

The bitter truth: Once a time, a man was not stopped his vehicle for rescue of one dog. The same man was veiling one whole day for the same pet animal trapped by hunters. But, these two characters were from the same guy. The difference is first one was at his 40; the later one was at his 7.  That’s why the old people scaled child and gods is same.

I was witnessed, when I was at elementary school, one of my friend sister helps her classmate who hails from poor family, by donating some color pencils. But, she gets scold and intimidate from my friend. Which one had changed my friends mind? Maybe his parents were deserved to get curse. They thought him how to be self-centered mind. That is why, this world has only less philanthropists.

Despite feel down many times, every kids has learned how to stand; how to absorbed language and speak. This time we should learn from kids, “how to pour love beyond borders.”

It is happy to feel younger while you would tire yourself if you mark yourself as mature.

Was it William Blake who said that "The child is father of the man"? Particularly in China, the child's curiosity and capacity for play and imitation, for experiment and questioning is destroyed by its education system and by parents whose views about education are so outdated and harmful. There is a balance needed between such curiosity and the discipline needed to study and structure learning. Time and opportunity to "play" and reflect on learning is just as important as study. Quality family time and opportunity for the development of social skills is there in childhood and lost once school begins.

One classic example of parents making children misbehave: when they induce their children to climb all over priceless relics or store displays in order to get a cute picture of their kid doing something remarkable. What does that teach the children?

Oh yes, "play" must be governed by simple rules of acceptable behavior. It baffles me how parents in China allow their children to run around crowded restaurants, climb on things and play in toilets..... and yet claim that children are valuable and must be kept safe.
