Kids Will Be Kids


Amongst the many things I enjoy, one thing ofcourse is to capture the twinkling eyes and eruptive smiles of children. The way they rush towards the lens (sometimes though scary) is often rewarding. Here is one such occasion when their smiles got frozen in time. Working with children I have often noticed adults who say that they cannot handle children or that they are not comfortable with children or any other excuse to keep themselves away from these mischievous tots;  when looked into their real issue, these are adults who would have had a turbulent childhood themselves, denied of love and care and neglected; the scar that itches every time they see childhood not actually the children. So next time you see an adult who can't "deal" with children, you know who needs an extra dose of love and care... right?!

a lot of very relevant points here. in a different vein, i sometimes think that it should be mandatory for would-be parents to take a training course in parenting before they are allowed to have kids.

@Sunil: Am glad I could capture it too.
@Subhorup: We do take courses in business before it crashes, so trainings aren't the safest bet for ensuring promising children. I think the natural instinct of parenting has been corrupted and that needs to be revived. Haven't figured out "how" yet... maybe someday we will.

awww!!! That is so insightful...yes, that is often the case. We sometimes need to play with the adult and make him/her laugh, be silly, and not worry about norms. That is such a sweet thoughtful post!
