We often say, if only we could transfer our experiences to our children… yes, indeed, so many things we can teach or show to our children but experience is something we cannot pass to them. They got to go through and gain the experience by themselves, either good or bad. However, we can teach our children some of the ancient Chinese sayings that more or less summarize lessons from life. Thousands of years of experience has become wisdom which we can definitely learn from. So let’s have a look at the 12 Chinese Sayings on life lessons.
