No matter your height, weight, or age … you will never stop growing. Not as long as you allow yourself the room needed to grow. We may never get taller but our minds will continue to stretch. Every single day on this earth gives you the opportunity to learn. Whether you learn through a message or you soak up some information, it’s all a step in the right direction.
As humans, we can easily be sidetracked by work, family, and entertainment. Let’s be honest, no one wants to sit around 24-hours a day with their heads stuck in a book, but what good is it if you’re not doing it at all. No matter how busy you may be, there’s always time to learn. Whether you’re picking up cooking skills, or seeking self-improvement help, learning is essential in our futures and the futures of our children.
It isn’t fully a teachers responsiblity to teach your kids. You have more responsibility as a parent to bring out something in your kid. Try teaching your kid things they can’t learn in school while keeping them from learning them the hard way. The more you know, the better. Your kid may want to be a scientist because one day you explained to him how people float in space because of its lack of gravity. Although he may be taught the same thing in school, there’s nothing more special than a learning relationship between child and parent.
Aside from children, it’s still important for you to drop the controller and pick up a book or two. The internet is personally my favorite learning tool. The Internet is the world at your fingertips. Stop downloading and posting for a second and learn something. Pick up on a new language, learn how to do your own taxes, whatever it may be, just plant the seed of learning and watch it grow.
