Seven Reasons not to Mess up with Children:

1) A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small.

The little girl stated that a whale swallowed Jonah. Irritated, the teacher reiterated angrily that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible.

The little girl said, “When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah”.

The teacher asked, “What if Jonah went to hell?”

The little girl replied, “Then you ask him”.

2) A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing.

She would occasionally walk around to see each child’s work.

As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was.

The girl replied, “I’m drawing God.”

The teacher paused and said, “But no one knows what God looks like.”

Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied, “They will in a minute.”

3) A teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds.

After explaining the commandment to “honor thy father and thy mother”, she asked, “Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?”

Without missing a beat one little boy (the oldest of a family) answered, “Thou shall not kill.”

4) One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink.

She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head.

She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, “Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?”

Her mother replied, “Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white.”

The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, “Momma, how come ALL of grandma’s hairs are white?”

5) The children had all been photographed, and the teacher was trying to persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture.

“Just think how nice it will be to look at it when you are all grown up and say, ‘There’s Jennifer, she’s a lawyer,’ or

‘That’s Michael, He’s a doctor.’

A small voice at the back of the room rang out, “And there’s the teacher, she’s dead.”

6) A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood.

Trying to make the matter clearer, she said, “Now, class, if I stood on my head, the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the face.” “Yes,” said the class.

“Then why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary position the blood doesn’t run into my feet?”

A little fellow shouted, “Cause your feet ain’t empty.”

7) The children were lined up in the cafeteria of an elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples.

The teacher made a note, and posted it on the apple tray: ‘Take only ONE. God is watching.’

Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. A child had written a note, ‘Take all you want. God is watching the apples’.

    Dear website owner(s), this is one of the most enjoyable websites I have seen! Thank you so much!

    May I add a suggestion for posting? (from one of the first “Knowledge of Reality” magazines):

    Abraham Lincoln’s
    Letter to his Son’s Teacher

    He will have to learn, I know,
    that all men are not just, all men are not true.
    But teach him also that
    for every scoundrel there is a hero;
    that for every selfish politician,
    there is a dedicated leader …
    Teach him that for every enemy there is a friend.
    It will take time, I know; but teach him if you can,
    that a dollar earned is of far more value than five found…
    Teach him to learn to lose …
    and also enjoy winning.
    Steer him away from envy, if you can,
    teach him the secret of quiet laughter.
    Let him learn early that
    the bullies are the easiest to lick …
    Teach him if you can the value of books …
    But also give him quiet time
    to ponder the eternal mystery of birds in the sky,
    bees in the sun, and flowers on a green hillside.
    In school teach him
    it is far more honorable to fail than to cheat…
    Teach him to have faith in his own ideas,
    even if everyone tells him he is wrong …
    teach him to be gentle with gentle people,
    and tough with the tough.
    Try to give my son
    the strength not to follow the crowd
    when everyone is getting on the bandwagon …
    Teach him to listen to all men …
    but teach him also to filter all he hears
    on a screen of truth,
    and take only the good that comes through.
    Teach him, if you can, how to laugh when he is sad …
    Teach him there is no shame in tears.
    Teach him to scoff at cynics
    and to beware of too much sweetness.
    Teach him to sell his brawn
    and brain to the highest bidders,
    but never to put a price tag
    on his heart and soul.
    Teach him to close his ears to a howling mob …
    and to stand and fight
    if he thinks he is right.
    Treat him gently, but do not cuddle him,
    because only the test of fire makes fine steel.
    Let him have the courage to be impatient …
    let him have the patience to be brave.
    Teach him always
    to have sublime faith in himself,
    because then he will always have sublime faith in
    mankind.
    This is a big order, but see what you can do…
    He is such a fine little fellow,
    my son!

    With much love, Flurina Wollenberger, Florida, USA

    Jai Shri Mataji!

    hello – didn’t know such a site existed – great fun –
    I am an African who migrated to New Zealand and
    am searching for sites to help empower me to keep
    in touch with our culture and bring up my children
    to know who they are by imbracing the new culture
    yet not despising their own. do not know how but
    google led me to your site – I am now hooked.

  3. Dear Flurina and Kaz,

    Thank you very much for your warm comments and the input you have made into the blog. It’s so great that this blog somehow has become a unifying thing for people from all over the world!

    Kaz has raised the topic of the connection and interlacing of cultures and that is what I am trying to implement in the blog, too. I am Russian but the blog is in English and the material for the posts is taken from all the coners of the world if it is really pure and valuable. By the way, this is one of the things which Sahaja Yoga also teaches us – to be connected and unified but at the same time not to los our individuality as each of us is like a flower in one big bouquet.
