I mean as opposed to adults: some adults who don't know me take a look in my eyes and take another step backwards - people have told me that I have a madness in my eyes and that I am, to all intents and purposes anyway, a scary and intense person. Yeah, right, OK. TongueOut

If all the above is true, then why is it that kids seem to like me and are not frightened by me? A case in point: yesterday, i was waiting for the bus and I smiled at a child who was walking by me. I always have a smile for a child, any child, no matter how bad I may feel. He stopped, smiled, put his hand on my knee - maybe he thought I was a statue  TeddyR and I looked at him and smiled again. He smiled and walked away.

Result: I think children (the most perceptive of all humans) see the gentle soul beneath the supposedly scary exterior: therefore they are more adult than the adults.  Smile

I think  has to do with your honesty and trueness. For reason I do not understand, that scares adults. Not children, though.

Adults in general are terrible people, I think it happens around puberty.  That's when we start to grow up, become more mature realize that we have to look good not for ourselves but for others because they will judge us and we in turn will judge them.  Everyone eventually becomes an a-hole wether they admit it or not. 

Given that this was still a child he saw you and thought "Oh Em Gee!  It's a super hero!"

If a child asks me a question, I answer truthfully, no nonsense. My special niece (now five) asked me once if I have someone in my life and I told her that I didn't. She wished that I would find someone.  Smile

Good point Bushma.
We spend so much time worrying about how we look to others that we really don't realize that all the while we try to look good for others, we ourselves become critics of those around us who we perceive to not be as good looking by our standards.  And yes, we become idiots more than we know, speaking from experience and from the humility borne of that experience when it returns to me.

You're a very kind and decent person,my friend,and kids pick up on that. Adults,however,just seem to want to pidgeon-hole others into some mold they can live with. Plus I think trust is often a casualty of adulthood.

I agree with the rest of the folks here, and at the risk of coming across as a New Age freak, I'll offer an explanation, of sorts.

Kids don't have all the filters that we as adults have built up. They can sense auras. Doesn't mean they can see them, but I believe they can sense them. Most people have muddy auras; basically, they are like a cloud of static to kids. But when a person with a fairly clear aura gets near them, they can sense the calm, the lack of static. You have little to no static in your aura, good sir. To kids, you are like stepping out of a crowded street into a quiet meadow. You are an oasis for them in a world of static.

This is how kids look at me:



At least the three we had.  I assume others are better though.

Thanks, SisterT: I have always found it a bit odd that children like and trust me, so I take extreme care never to betray that liking and especially the trust. I also get angry when people abuse children with their reasons being "it was done to me". It was done to me too and I will never abuse a child, mentally, physically or verbally.

Mom told me that I undergo a visible change when I am around children: my eyes and facial expressions become warmer and I am able to relate to kids on a "I'm on your level" basis.*

LOL....that reminds me of this t-shirt I couldn't resist buying. It says "Kids,the gift that keeps on taking". My daughter hates it,for some reason. TeddyR
