Teach Well!

I love to learn from everyone.
I learn what I need to know and what I need to teach.
Learning and teaching are helpful to create a better life for us all.
I easily listen, value and remember what I choose to have repeated.

We Are Teachers!

How we live is our teaching.
Our children listen to our words.
Our children observe our behavior.
Our children feel our truth and integrity.

What others need to learn is what you need to teach.
We cannot teach, demonstrate or inspire what we do not know.
So first we must learn what our children need to know.
If you have not been taught, you will not know how to teach.

So where do we learn what is needed to be taught?
We can experiment and see what works well.
We can watch what others do that we admire and value.
We can see what we don’t like and choose not to copy those behaviors.

All of us are learning, copying, experimenting, rehearsing to live what we want.
Wise or ignorant, loving or fearful, happy or in pain, grateful or greedy, helpful or needy?
We all have choices to live, teach and say what we want to be and see.
Intend to live and give what you want to experience.

Show up, pay attention and tell your highest truth; then let go and observe.
Life will go the way your intention flows.
Follow up with your own thoughts, words and behavior.
See if you are living, loving and giving what you want to receive.

Often parents do not see what they have omitted or missed. 
Those who have “already been there and done that” do not realize the value of teaching and learning.
When we love, we carefully teach those we love.
When we care, we want to share what we have learned.

To learn from our elders most easily depends on our respect for what we observe in our elders.
To really want to listen and value others requires that we be respected in our willingness.
To understand the huge differences between generations requires that we listen to one another.
Before being heard and understood, I must first listen and understand, watch and learn from others.

Consider what today’s youth need to know to be safe, capable and successful.
Give what knowledge and wisdom you have and refer what you don’t have.
Contribute what you would want to receive or benefit from receiving.
Below is a list of recommendations from an article in

Add what you believe is valuable and give what you can.
Look for support and encourage our teens to develop their own resources.
Everyone needs to be resourceful in taking good care of their own lives.
Let you life be a light for others; be a guide and source of inspiration.

Blessings for us all to learn and teach the best we know.
