10 Lessons Toddlers Can Teach Adults

The mall play place is for making friends

When I was at the mall with my children the other night, I started to come to a realization about the innocence of our toddlers.  They really have so many lessons they can teach us as adults.

They are fearless, friendly, and have no type of prejudice at all. It is something they learn, and experience as they grow and are truly exposed to the world around them. Whether it is their parents, other kids at school or strangers they encounter as they grow.

The more I thought about it, I started to jot down a list of the lessons I think toddlers would be great at teaching to their parents, and other adults they may have in their lives.   They have so many important lessons we would probably never think of ourselves!

Feel free to comment and include your own lessons!
