6 Life Lessons Preschoolers Can Teach You

Written by Aimee Jannsohn

Life is pretty simple for most preschoolers. What you see is what you get.  If you wish you could view the world through those eyes once again – here’s a basic lesson plan.

 


1
Include everyone.

 

The average preschooler’s tea party is an assortment of dolls, teddy bears, action figures…you name it. All shapes, sizes and colors are welcome and have a place at the table. If your circle of friends isn’t as diverse, look deep in your soul and find ways to become more inclusive.   


2
View the world with wonder.

 

Make like an excited preschooler and look for a shooting star, identify all the colors in a rainbow, search the grass for a four-leaf clover. Nature’s little miracles will never cease to amaze you, no matter how old you are.


3
Be kind.

 

These are two simple words, but they have the power to change the world, one person at a time. There’s no hidden message—it’s all right there. Just ask any preschooler.


4
Always tell the truth.

 

Preschoolers come hardwired with a whole lot of honesty. They tell it like it is, making no apologies. Sure, you might not appreciate being told your hair looks like hell,but you’ll be so happy when you’re told you’re the best—because you know it will be sincere.    


5
Look up to someone.

 

Preschoolers have no qualms about admiring and emulating; it helps to shape who they are and who they become. So check your ego at the door and look for a good role model and mentor. You’re never too old to learn how to be a better person.   


6
Be a good helper.

 

You probably know a very eager preschooler who is always willing to lend a helping hand. If just a little bit of that kindness and enthusiasm could be bottled and sold, what a wonderful world it would be. Until that happens, intentionally seek out those who need a hand, and give one when you can.
