As soon as you look into their eyes and give them a smile then only you will know how sweet and lovely their reciprocation is.
Children are great source of joy and happiness if you have time to devote with them. Their world is a place of solace and happiness which one can only feel after entering in.
Knowledge is power.
Children need love. The best way to shower love on them is to smile at them, when you see them. When we smile at a child, they consider that person to be a friendly fellow and they start to mix somehow.
It makes them gain confidence to talk with the other person. Children contain the purest feelings, giving a smile makes them feel that this world is the happiest place.
Do what inspires you !!
The child, a symbol of innocence, honesty and pure love is a joy to interact or smile. These are the qualities we had but lost them along the way. It will help the child too, in understanding faces and learn how to respond.
The only drawback is that, given the crimes against children, when we are eagerly trying to interact with a child ( at a crowded place or supermarket or outside a school), people should not mistake us for a child lifter or look at us suspiciously.
