her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time,
even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love." Rebecca - age 8

2. When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You
just know that your name is safe in their mouth." Billy - age 4

friends even after they know each other so well." Tommy - age 6

20. Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked
to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child. The
winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly
gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the
little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and
just sat there. When his Mother asked him what he had said to the neighbor,
the little boy said, "Nothing, I just helped him cry."

We give children so little credit. We look down at them and patronize them because they're so small, and we perceive their innocence as weakness. If anyone can save us, it's them. We should all love each other as much as they love us.

Why is it we spend so much time worrying about what we are teaching them, and ignoring everything they are trying to teach us?

We adults were like that once...what happened to us?
