 خدوا فالكم من صغاركم

Khodo falkom men segharkom

Translation: Take a cue from what your children say.

Meaning: Children have a natural wisdom and an eye for detail that grown ups have lost, so pay attention to what they say and you may learn a few things. This saying is slightly archaic, as the word “falkom” seems to have receded from daily conversation, but most people will understand it nonetheless.
