Have you ever been the beneficiary of Child Wisdom or Kiddy Zen?

Asked by RealEyesRealizeRealLies (30874points) November 2nd, 2010

Just today, I heard an 11 year old say… “If you find yourself struggling with something that you’re just not in to, then just get in to it and get it over with”.

Makes sense to me. And it set me back for a moment, wondering why I hadn’t thought of that. It was a reminder to suck it up and deal with the situation the best I can. It was near embarrassing being schooled by a kid.

What Child Wise comments have you benefitted from? Does anyone know of any books on Kiddy Zen? You know, like a book on Yogi Quotes, but from Children?

I have one book similar to that.
Oh and here’s an interesting website with some great quotes from kids.

I asked my oldest son when he was 5 or 6 years old, “If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?”

He thought for a second before answering, “A blue one.”
