Young children love splashing in puddles, dancing in the mud, and playing hide and seek. Sometimes they include their imaginary friends who are an integral part of their lives; and when they vanish, their hearts are filled with grief. Mira Meir suggests that we, adults, join our children and see the world from their perspective. Listen to them, share their excitement and joy, and, whenever necessary, offer consolation and cheer them up, as the bible says:
Age Group: KINDERGARTEN
Train up a child in the way they should go
