"Find joy in others' joy"

-Talking with Trees Books

Do you ever hear you children put each other down when they accomplish something new? It sounds something like this--
Child 1: "I just learned my multiplication tables to 12!"
Child 2: "Well I could do that two years ago!"
What's really happening here is about jealousy. One child's success doesn't mean the other one's shortcoming. When we teach children to treat others' accomplishments with respect and share in the joy of the moment, they get joy to infinity! Learn more about finding joy in this full article about this quote.
