"While we try to teach..."

"While we try to teach our children all about life,
our children teach us what life is all about"
This is a quotation by Angela Schwindt,
who has been a home-schooling mom in Oregon
Particularly, my daughter has taught me:
1. to relax
2. not to give importance to what is irrelevant: most adults´worries
3. to give importance to what is really relevant: storytelling, painting, running for no reason, laughing, jumping, hugging, kissing...
4. to admire and be happy looking at simple things like feathers, sticks, plastic bags moving in circles
5. to forget... bad-tempered moments
... and so on.
What have you learnt from children?
