What I Learned From The Children’s Book ‘Everyone Poops’
The real life lesson is right in the title…
Everyone does a lot of things.
The lesson in this book is that we are all the same. We all function the same. Our bodies are designed to do certain things and that we must not feel shame or embarrassment in regard to our own bodily functions, nor should we shame people for their normal bodily functions.
This goes for children AND adults, for when children do not learn this lesson, they grow to become adults who perpetuate embarassment and shame of body and function.
The lesson in this book is to NORMALIZE OUR BODILY FUNCTIONS.
…okay, you get the point.
If anyone shames you for ANY type of normal bodily function(s) they are full of shit! (And they are going to have to poop that shit out… JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE)
The bigger picture is that we cannot teach our children not to be embarrassed of these things if we are.
Accept yourself, teach your children to accept themselves and always remember…
