What Children Teach Us About Love



小朋友:咿咿呀呀。 老爸:放这里?看看上面是几 ……
哦,这个上面有颗树。 看到没,树?
小朋友:有。 我们很容易就知道怎样爱护小朋友 老爸:肚子饿了没?来点西兰花。 对孩子,我们超有耐心。 我的心肝小宝贝,
来看看星期六吃了啥好东西。 巧克力蛋糕、冰激凌、
瑞士奶酪还有香肠。 对于熊孩子,我们也会找各种借口开脱。 老爸:熊孩子。 肯定是饿了。 熊孩子发癫,更不会往心里去。 老爸:开饭了。 肚子饿不? (熊孩子把饭打翻在地,哭了。) 估计又在牙疼了。 可对于成年人,却是另外的套路。 老妈:小宝贝。 小朋友:看看我手里的宝贝。 老妈:一辆小马车。 老妈(气急败坏):车险有去更新过没? 老爸:没有阿,我还以为是你去弄呢。 老妈:昨晚不是才讲过的!
老爸:可我也没说要去啊! 老妈:你在狡辩。
老爸:没有啊,为啥要狡辩。 老爸:你为啥这么想?
老妈:你一直都这样啊。 我们总是往坏处想。 老妈:为什么总是要我去擦屁股。 为什么我觉得这段婚姻里面,
就只有我像个成年人。 你整天在家,啥也没做。 这么点小事,你都不能帮我搞定。 但试想,我们把对付小孩子的那套
用到成年人身上 (回放) 老妈(和颜悦色):
车险有去更新过没? 老爸:讲正事前,要不来杯酒? 试想:我们都超有耐心 老妈(满脸狐疑):好啊!
老爸:Sauvignon blanc(长相思) 老妈:好的,来一杯。
老爸:那再配点吃的。 试想:我们都能为对方多想一下。 老妈:好啊。
老爸:意面如何? 老妈:太棒了。 试想:当初我们很想长大 老爸:不好意思,今天没去弄车险。 我整天都在当奶爸。 小宝今天很难搞,可能昨晚没睡好,
所以今天一直粘着我。 他今天把饭撒了一地。
老妈(吃惊):不会吧。 试想:我们不要发泄到对方身上。 老妈:谢谢! 老爸:客气啦! 老妈:在家带孩子是有点累,
整天都粘着你。 我们以后不会那么尖酸刻薄 老爸:小宝会不小心弄伤自己,
现在想睡个好觉都难。 老妈:你说的没错。 晚安了! 很多时候,我们很爱孩子,
是多么了不起的事情呢! 好了,我们要学会如何去爱、去原谅、
去照顾另一半孩子气的一面。

  1. Have you learnt anything from children that you have taken into your adult relationships? Tell us below. If you want to meet us in person join us in San Francisco on 23rd-25th of March: https://goo.gl/TphC6c

  2. People are commenting on how adults need to take responsibility and that we treat children differently because they have not developed full awareness yet. This is true but we still make mistakes. The husband in this video didn't throw his food on the floor and start howling, like the child did; he made a fairly harmless error in forgetting to renew the car insurance. We are fallible and there is no escaping this. Accepting it isn't stripping us of all adult responsibility, it is simply making a little bit of room for fault. And we will all need that understanding at some stage.

  3. Now we need another video where please explain why we do not treat adults as children. Stakes are higher in adult relationships,  thet's why we behave like that.Tact is useful in all kinds of relationships; that's the message of this video, I guess; and not treat adults as children to show kindness and avoiding conflicts!

  4. the only place this vid fell short was in the rewind of the 2 adults, its about good and compassionate communication skills, not offering a person distractions, bribes, rewards. you don't need to butter someone up if you speak kindly, calmly and respectfully to them. conversely there is nothing wrong with being attentive to a partner's needs that could contribute to a convo going well, but the choices used here made it seem a bit yucky and manipulative. if you are here looking how to learn how to be a better lover, to all beings, check out NVC, or non-violent communication as taught by Marshall Rosenberg. i'm not putting down SOL i love their work and am a subscriber! but you should also know about this amazing work. it changed my life absolutely!

  5. So many ppl are missing the point of this message. Its not that we should treat adults as children or that we should have the same expectations we do for a toddler as for an adult. Its about empathy n understanding for ur partner. He didn't get the car insurance because he was busy taking care of a fussy kid, it was a mistake. If ur child makes a mistake ur not going to bite his head off will u? Its the same concept.

  6. Everything that a child sees and feels about his or her family will help nourish their growth. Whatever goes on around the child's environment growing up is reflected in his or her behavior towards others.

  7. There're much to learn in the school of life, thanks for videos to understand love and relationship.

  8. Never had children and I am glad I didn't. Is that a crime? Well too bad. I have met a lot of obnoxious high end and low end children who I knew would become obnoxious adults, bullies, without compassion like their families and all I can say, I am SO glad they weren't my children.

  9. I disagree. There are PLENTY of people out there who don't know how to care for children and aren't patient with them.

  10. One thing love does not mean that EVERYONE that you know in your family loves you a life is what it is something you have isn't changeable I wish everyone had a great life but as you grow up you know something will change your life..

  11. This is just one example of case anyway. There are lots of reason adults drive you nuts and reacting to them with love is just one hard thing to do. It's more bcs they know what they are doing and they have choice of not doing the wrong thing, but they don't take that choice. Children onn the other hand, don't know what position, situation they are in and how should they react to situations. It's easy for us to love children bcs we know this fact.

  12. My wife and I have been having some rough times since our daughter was born, and this video made me cry. Well done.

  13. This was stunning. I have recently been telling people that there is a little girl in every woman that wants to be treated like a princess – that is how it should be. Having both a son and a daughter is such a blessing.

  14. We as a race, are in the habit of saying "But he's just a little child. Whereas an adult (or older child) should know better." But could it be that the only people who really do "know better", are the people who have the consciousness (awareness) to be able to never act up. This is not to imply that I am one of them, because really, there is no such animal.
