What if children are here on earth, not to be taught, but are sent as a way of teaching us?
The photo above was taken at a Suzuki piano performance class, where parents and children are listening to a story about John Phillips Sousa. How many of us would take the time to learn as much as we do without the motivation of teaching a child? Ask most any involved elementary parent, homeschooled or not, and they will tell you the joy of seeing the world in a new light - through the eyes of their child or how they learned something that surely they must have covered in their own elementary years, but had forgotten.
Today, increasingly, it becomes easy to disengage, to allow the TV and computer and gaming systems to replace the real world experiences. Perhaps we all need to remember to see the world with the eyes of a child.
