It is very true that a child teaches patience cause before I had my son I was very impatient and careless today I have all together become pateint not that I had to but every time I saw his face I felt that its not his fault he has to be taught. What do you say about it?

If the parents are understanding, it does for sure. For females pregnancy itself starts the process :)

I think most people learn a great deal of patience with their kids, even if they don't realize it. Even something as simple as letting the baby finish their bottle before you get up to use the restroom is patience. Their needs have to come first, and ours for the most part, become secondary. You're right that the kids need to be taught how to be patient themselves. That doesn't happen when they're really young, but over time. Just like it does for adults.

I agree with you before my first child I had no patience. Know I have four kids and have learned a great deal of patience.If not I dont know how I would of handled all of them. I truly belive god gave me my children to learn patience. Things that would have drove me crazy then seem so stupid now.
