Children of the world
By TeachOneWorld on August 22, 2016
Instead of the introduction of the article or of a definition of children, I could better say that children are those who tell us who we actually are. Children give us a life lesson in each and every moment of their life. Their strength, fragility and expressions of surprise, delight, frustration, stubbornness and anger allow us to rediscover innate parts of ourselves we keep in reserve.
Traveling – no geographic boundaries
Being in so many countries, traveling around the globe, I realised one certain thing – there seem to be no geographic boundaries when it comes to children. The emotions that you can surprise on their faces have no need to translation. Moreover, the gestures and manners that each country has represent a universal language that everyone can understand. This is why, among a tropical beach or the polar ice, the face of a child hiding during a moment of shyness it’s always something familiar.
One of the most beautiful moments I have ever seen during my travels is related to family life. For children, the family serves many purposes, such as: providing loving arms in which to fall asleep, listening to and solving big and small dilemmas, offering the proper economic and caring context for growing, provide all the required tools in order to learn how to face the world independently etc.

Children and play
For children, play represents the most natural behavior for their development and growth. Children of the world use all their physical, emotional and intelectual abilities during play and sometimes can be extremely energetic when the game takes place in the company of many other children. But, in the end, play is about freedom, fun and learning new things. So, why not playing?!

Children of the world
Children communicate more spontaneously and therefore more clearly in a nonverbal way than adults. This is the reason why you can easily recognize a familiar expression on a child no matter you see him or her on the street, in a shop, in Nigeria or China.
My advice for you is to enjoy these kind of special, universal-language moments and rediscover your inner child from time to time…
