Childhood Wisdom

I’ve been taught to value what my elders teach me because they have years of wisdom.

Growing up will definitely change your perspective of the world, in retrospect of how you viewed it as a child. An adult is expected to be mature but there are valuable & wise childhood qualities that are worth keeping.

Out of the Mouth of Babes: The Wisdom We Have As Children

3 Profound Pieces of Wisdom From Children


When you were a toddler, you saw the world as an amazing place of discovery.

As a child, you learned everything through trial & error, you didn’t worry about how ridiculous you looked when you stumbled because falling down only made you more determined to succeed. You kept your eyes on your goals & even applauded yourself for every little achievement.

We all have an instinctive capability to view obstacles as challenges, overcome failure & to persevere.


It’s almost impossible to meet anybody who hasn’t been through something difficult & trying in life.

You can’t always prevent people from hurting you but you can control how you react to it. As a child, you could easily forgive because you didn’t fully develop the capability of holding a grudge. As an adult, you have to learn how to amicably resolve disputes in your private & professional life.

Recognising your own faults & forgiving others for their shortcomings is what ultimately sets you free emotionally.


Do you remember what you wanted to be when you were a child?

You saw no limitations to what you could accomplish because the world was your playground. Our ambitions change as we grow older, mainly because of what other people told us we can or can’t do. Imagine what you could achieve if you had that childlike confidence again.

It’s good to leave childish behaviours behind when you become an adult but it’s wise to hold on to those wonderful childhood qualities.
