As adults we serve as children's guides for society's future benefit. We were each a child who grew and became more visible in the world.
If we respect children as individuals who have their own thoughts, emotions, and dreams, they will feel good about themselves and in turn respect us. This back and forth respect and communication bridges the generation gap.

We tend to lump children together as one homogenous segment of humanity. More often than not because of their achievements, we see the individuality of adults rather than the uniqueness of each child.

For our children with learning disabilities we need to strive to bring out their best by emphasizing their strength to compensate for the shortcomings. Even if we don't have learning disabilities we each have strong points and over time gravitate in those directions like the flow of a river or gravity.

For adults, children are our inspirations to act as best we can. Growth is from both sides. The 'adult' is the example and the 'child' inspires the adult to be their best.

Children are impressionable and react rapidly to stimulus. Children as individuals need a general and personalized plan with their schooling to develop their inherent qualities.

Besides academics, children need to learn practical living skills and right living practices, which provide a foundation to live in society as useful adults.

Children learn best when they see the adults around them modeling what they want the children to learn. Pace the rate of expectation for achievement in your children. They are all different, grow in each area at an individual rate with their own strengths, and one day will find themselves as fully grown adults in the world.
