Words of Wisdom All Kids Should Hear

As the long days of summer were winding down, we took a family vacation to visit the great-grandfather of our boys. The thing about Papow? He knows the score. He is a wealth of knowledge and spending time with him allows us to reconnect to our roots. We all look forward to the words of wisdom he sprinkles throughout our visits.

Papow’s insights were especially helpful as the boys started another school year. They are grounding. They are rejuvenating.  They are reinforcing.  They are like a deep cleansing breath that settles you down and prepares you for what lies ahead.

Do my boys realize this? Probably not. But I can see as they spend time with them they just soak up his life lessons. He has a way of sharing them that is pretty special. They adore their Papow (well it goes without saying that we all do), and the wisdom he imparts carries a particularly hefty weight.

And while his sage pearls of advice are timeless and universal, being reminded of them before heading into classrooms and playgrounds is an added bonus. It helps to keep the big picture on my boys’ radars.

And because I believe wisdom is meant to be shared, here are a few of Papow’s best wisdom for you.

Words of Wisdom all Kids Should Hear

All in good time.

Don't get ahead of yourself wishing you were older. Enjoy where you are right now. You'll be in the driver's seat before you know it.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if words of wisdom were taken the fist time you offer them?
