#SmarterSunday: “Changing The World, One Little Girl At A Time”

I am guilty of this:  meeting a little girl and complimenting her on her dress or her hair or her smile.   In fact, I probably say it to little boys, too.  Bloom Quote

“I love your dress!”

“How cute are you?”

“What a handsome one you are!”

This article by lawyer, writer and news analyst, Lisa Bloom, via Latina Fatale made me reconsider how I interact with children when I first meet them. When we initially notice their appearance, what message are we giving? Maybe it’s OK to offer a compliment, to break the ice, but there are so many other ways to go from there.  That’s why I like this article – the reminder that it’s important to really talk to children.

Enjoy!
