Have you ever seen a baby? She is so cute with her tiny feet, pure smile, loving gestures and incredible affection. Have you ever realized that your child could not walk properly, could not speak fluently, could not fulfill any task given to her and could not even take food with care ( without having any mess) yet she could give a smile, could perceive your love, anger, sadness, excitement and other emotions. Have you ever realized that in spite of being too weak and too dependent, your baby is fully equipped with the strongest emotion-love.
People need to know what love is! They can learn it from babies. Most babies love their mothers, their fathers and then their caregivers. They exactly know when to express happiness and when to be sad – happy with the view of their beloved one and sadness from the separation from their beloved one’s. They exactly know what their beloved likes to eat, what their beloved wears, and what their beloved likes to do on a routine. So much so, they know what the habits, their beloved one would appreciate, are and what are their habits their beloved one would never recommend. Their understanding about their beloved one is perfect and they react accordingly. They find peace in their beloved one’s company and often go to sleep when they find their love nearby. Moreover, they like the faces similar to their beloved ones. They even like the songs that they hear from their beloved. They even want others to follow the same routine that their beloved one used to carry on with them. We as adults are too ignorant to our beloved ones needs and behavioral traits that we could not compare to our tiny, freaky, but powerful babies!
Babies can very easily assess the environment. If you are going through a strange situation, your child will pick it up. If you are feeling tremendous excitement in your heart, your baby will smell it too. If you are taking care of her needs, she will try to take care of your needs in her own way. If you are making a joke to her, she will do the same or similar joke to you in return. If you teach her what affection is, she will show the same affection in the future. By contrast, if you teach her, what is anger through your behavior, she will react in the same way to you. You interact with her and at the same time she interacts with you, with complete harmony and sincerity. The same is not often true in adult relationships-we are always at opposite ends in our conversations with our beloved ones. We entertain many tasks at a time, so could not concentrate on each other’s real point of view. Should we learn it from babies on how can we become better interactive and communicative fellows!
What most your baby wants is to please you in one way or the other. Now it depends on the way of education you are following on how she will please you. But she will surely get your attention or please you in her innocent ways. She will try to get appreciation from you as soon as she learns the things you appreciate usually. She always prefers you to other entertaining, musical, interactive toys, fascinating colorful and moving games on computer. Instead she would be happier if you are playing with her even with a simple piece of wood. She would always prefer you to other activities if given a choice. Research has proved it too that children prefer toys to interacting with real animals or human beings. So do we prefer our beloved one to other commitments? Do we love or try to love the things our beloved one loves? Are we ready to leave everything we belong for the sake of our beloved one’s sweet company?
In short, babies are there to teach us what love, affection, intimacy and friendship is. Babies better interact with us with all sincerity and purity of thought. Babies never tell a lie and are deeply in love with their mothers, fathers and caregivers. They reflect what you show them and they learn what you teach them. They know nothing except what you have directly or indirectly told them or are telling them. But they follow it in exactly the same way and their conviction about you is stronger than anybody else in the world. They perceive you through the most honest, clear, and strong brain mapping mechanism.
Most important thing is that you do not need to become babies to follow the rules they keep, rather you need to become adults who could better behave in the matters of love and affection. You need to understand the instincts you are born with, are still with you. You need to remember the simple rule of love – at least better than babies!
