The Nicer You Are The Happier You Are

Kids say the darndest things sometimes and I just don’t know where they come up with some of the things that come out of their little mouths. My five year old told me yesterday that ‘the nicer you are the happier you are’. I asked him where he had heard that and he said he learned it from one of his video lessons.

Wow! I am amazed at the things they pick up sometimes and this time I am so glad that it was a good lesson. We all had a quick little discussion about whether or not that statement was true as Caitlyn (10 going on 30) insisted it couldn’t possibly be correct.

She later changed her mind after realizing that the old advice ‘Do unto others as you would have others do unto you’ was probably the reasoning behind her brother’s remark. We also discussed ways to be kind to one another and how we would want to be treated in certain situations.

All in all it was a very good, but impromptu, lesson in character.

What have your kids said lately that has surprised you?

  1. I don’t know—they say all kinds of crazy stuff. I have a 6, 8, and 10-year-old and I am always amazed at some of the deep thoughts they articulate. My ten-year old asked me why people keep believing in evolution when they keep changing the facts around. I did the best I could to answer her, but it was an excellent question. 🙂
