I received lots of great entries for my last contest, What's the Best Thing a Child Has Taught You?? 15 people total submitting a entry post!

As I stated in the contest announcement post, there were many stories that proved children can sometimes be the teachers in our world. They may say or do something that really teaches us a lesson.

It was difficult to choose the winners all by myself, so I enlisted the help of two #STEEMmamas, @happycrazycon and @orangina to help me read through and vote for the best entries!

What is STEEMmamas?

I ran this contest as a way to bring more awareness to my new Discord community, @STEEMmamas.


Along with a nice turn out for the contest, we have also had lots of new mamas join our server. If you are a mama who wants to connect with other moms of Steemit, join the server now!

Contest Winners

Without further ado, here are our winners!


First Place: @solarsupermama || Read Her Entry: Little Teachers

This story really spoke to our souls. It is about the hatred she accidentally bred into her child's life until he asked if he can kill someone. As @happycrazycon wrote, "It was hilarious to me at first but then it strikes me that she noticed her mistake and she went through a change of heart together with her child because she didn't want the poison of hatred to grow."

Seriously, a wonderful lesson here!!


Honorable Mention: @derangedvisions || Read His Entry: When as a parent you know you are doing it right

In this story, a poem written by his young daughter is shared. She is definitely wise beyond her years, and it really drives home the lesson of never letting other people's negativity toward you affect how you feel about yourself. POWERFUL message here!


Honorable Mention: @iamjadeline || Read Her Entry: The Best Thing My Children Have Taught Me

In her story, @iamjadeline discusses how her children have taught her to worry less and be happier with life even when you are being thrown problems and struggles. She has lots of anecdotes and photos to back up her lessons!


I have already sent over your contest winnings!! :)

Looking forward to your new post :) Good to know this makes your day too, love it when I know a fellow momma is boosted, coz sometimes I zombify through the day so I know how great that is, lol! <3

Thank you, @happycrazycon! We're all best off when we're learning together! The boost really was very needed and greatly appreciated. It's been a rough go, but the tide appears to be turning.

Thank you, @keciah! He continues to be a wonderful teacher at almost 20. The unschooling post will be fun. It's been a long journey.
