Mark - age 6

 

You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget."

Jessica - age 8

 

And the final one -- 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 what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said, "Nothing, I just helped him cry"</FONT></FONT>

kids are amazing! They are much smarter than people think! I was working in a kindergarten for 1 year, and let me tell you, I learned from THEM! There was also another study done that wanted to show how in the modern world grownups and successfull people tend to overanalyze everything and make it more complicated, no imagination. They took CEO's of big companies and kindergarten kidz and asked them the same questions. These were the questions and answers of the kids. Try answering yourself and see the difference.

How do you put an elephant in the fridge?

Kidz answer: You open the door, put the elephant in, close the door.

How do you then put a giraffe in the fridge?

Kidz: You open the door, take out the elephant, put in the giraffe, close the door.

So cute. I wish I could live in their world again...
