An Attitude Lesson From A Child

Real Estate Agent with Benchmark Realty LLC, Nashville TN 615.516.5233 TN 221117

I took my twelve year old grandson to get a haircut yesterday. 


He is a talkative child, and my hairdresser wanted to hear about his school and teachers. She asked him about his favorite teachers and he named a couple.


She then asked him about his least favorite teachers. He thought a minute, then said that he couldn’t think of any.


I was so proud of his positive attitude. So proud that at his age when a lot of kids are negative toward school and teachers, that he couldn’t think of any ‘least favorite teachers.’ 


We older folks need to forget about our least favorite clients and associates (if we are obsessing over them and letting them take over our thoughts), and think about the good people who bless us daily in work and personal life. Negative people thoughts can really drag us down if we let them.

That is a GREAT attitude to have, and it hopefully means that he has great teachers too!

Good morning Sarah, John Rummage ,

I'm so glad Kathy Streib featured your post in her weekly "ah-ha" moments for the week post! We learn so much from children. Positive and happy thoughts keep us propelled in the right direction. Dwelling on negativity will always drag you down and others around you! I just subscribed to your post.

What a refreshing perspective. I suspect most kids would have had one or more teachers that were not their favorites. Indeed a good reminder for all of us!

I would encourage your barber to focus on hair cutting. In west coast 98% barbers are Vietnamese women.  They chatter in high pitch Vietnamese to each other. All of a sudden they stop cutting my hair because they were watching some Vietnamese soap opera. I went to a different one the TV is on in Spanish.

Children can offer us great lessons in life by their words and their actions!

I'd say your grandson is going to live a very happy life with that attitude.

The innocence of a child to give a lesson that so may adults need to address.
