How to Really Love a Child:

Be there. Say Yes as Often as you can.
If they're crabby, put them in water.
Read books out loud with joy.
Go find elephants and kiss them. Encourage Silly.
Giggle a lot. Paint their tennis shoes
Imagine you are magic. Remember how really small they are.
Search out the positive. Let them bang on pots and pans
Keep the gleam in your eye. Teach feelings.
Realize how much it means to be a child.
Plan to build a rocket ship.
Stop yelling. Surprise them often
Express your love a lot…children are miraculous!

(borrowed from Carly, who borrowed if from someone else)
