#O que os bebés nos podem ensinar

«(...) People are usually tired and scared; not mean. Babies can't, of course, tell us what is wrong with them. We have to guess - and what's striking is how generous we are in our interpretation of what is going on... We are constantly aware of just how much the workings of hunger, a tricky digestive tract or a lack of sleep may affect human character. How helpful it would be if we were more often able to apply a similar method of interpretation around adults. How kind we would be if we could look beneath the surface behavior - the unpleasantness, viciousness and desperate grumpiness - and see that what could really be going on is just confusion, fear and exhaustion.» The book of Life, Chapter 3, Relationships: Sweetness of Children
