Children can express themselves in various ways, but when a teacher in Denver asked her 3rd grade class about what they wish she knew, the results were shocking. Kyle Schwartz, the third grade teacher at Doull Elementary in Denver, Colorado shared the news on Twitter using the hashtag #iwishmyteacherknew. It hits close to home because the majority of her students are Hispanic.
These colorful notes are going viral on Twitter and social media because it brings light on issues like immigration and basic needs that we assume every child has. It also teaches adults how important it is to communicate with their children on a daily basis.
Many of the things adults don’t realize is that children notice when you don’t worry, when you work too much, when you get upset when they ask you for something as simple as a pencil.
It’s important to have good communication with your children, the earlier the better. Tell them to draw you a picture, to tell you a story, so you could learn what their interests or worries are. Sometimes it’s not all about how much money you have or the brand name shoes that you think they want.
Parents often think that the more they work, the more they can provide for their children, when in reality that doesn’t matter. Years later, they’re not going to remember the expensive shoes you bought them, but the games and the laughs you shared together.
