- They Delight in learning new things. Anything they learn that is new to them is an adventure. It's exciting. It's full of mystery and enjoyment. When they listen while we are teaching them something, they look with such expectant faces, such eager expressions.
- They Delight in being praised. When they do something well, and they show they have learned something, they love it when we praise them and give them hugs for learning something. This is especially true if they show they have learned something about what is right and wrong. When they have learned to obey mom and dad. We never compare their performance in a task, but we compare behavior. When last did you stop, look back at the work you have done and thanked the Lord and told yourself "Well done"?
- They Delight in doing the learned activity over and over again. And sometimes they surprise us by blurting out something they learned a few days previously, but are still thinking about and processing what they learned. How often do you let your learned material go over and over in your mind?
My twin boys Luke and Nathan are going to be turning three years of age in July this year. The term "twinado" describes them perfectly! I joke with my patients and introduce them as the last two Bin Ladens! But their approach to life has taught me so much about how I think we as adults should approach studying.
