Parents should always be on the lookout for a great lesson for children. One of my favorite is -get all you can and can all you get.

It is important to teach our children to get and retain knowledge. I am sharing some lessons I learned and am passing to my children. I hope by doing so you will get some useful tips and share them with your family. A previous article shared the idea that we must teach our children it is okay to fail because they can get up and keep moving forward. Future articles about lessons for children will share the ideas that:

There are so many pieces of information that we come across each day. Most of it goes in one ear and out the other so to speak.

In conclusion, It is wonderful to learn, to discover, and to experience. We should all strive to get all the information we can and then strive to can or keep as much of that information in our possession as possible. So the question for you this serene day is what do you teach your children about information retention?
