I guess for the most part, aside from being able to watch cartoons, going out, reading books, animating, reciting rhymes and lulling them to sleep, one of the best things I am continuously learning from living with children is keeping in touch with this
sense of curiosity...
innocence and simplicity...
One Sunday, my mom and I gave a wonderful treat to my nieces, belle, who was then five and faustine, who was one, to the Manila Zoo...
I have to thank my teacher who opened me to the idea of different types of learners. We're mostly visual and auditory but my niece faustine is a tactile learner. She has to touch the objects inorder to grasp its meaning...
well, (ATTENZIONE) I just had her touch the big snake (nyahaha!)...
It was like making true a wish I had for my professors in history. I wanted them to see the ruins in Rome too (especially the Colosseo) when I went there. Going to the real place keeps me in touch with its historic essence.
This is what I wanted my nieces to feel... well, okay, the zoo has no historic value (hahaha!) but they were able to see the ones we studied in their picture books.
I found myself totally relaxed for quite sometime being with the children...I guess, it's because I'm beginning to enjoy their company more...
I am able to reach to that part of me that has been lost for quite sometime...that playful side of me...
I love these children....
"You can do nothing with children unless you win their confidence and love by bringing them into touch with yourself, by breaking through all the hindrances that keep them at a distance. We must accommodate ourselves to their tastes, we must make ourselves like them."-St. John Bosco
