to be honest,i have to say i love kids and little children so much.they are always socute and pretty,they are innocent angels,have no worries and sorrows.laugh when you feel like to,cry when their emotion go down or their meets aren't satisfied.about three days ago,one of my niece came to visit me,she is only six years old ,but very mature.she knows clearly what she can do or what she cant do.she refused to have an icecream when i gave her because she said she caught a bad cold.how clever she is,i sometimes cant resist the temptation.and she behaviors like an adult,write numbers and chinese characters carefully.how beautiful she is!she has two big watery eyes and a cherry mouth.also she is very clean,pick up the peals in to the dustbin.i love her so much,i love children so much,so i decide to have two lovely girls as my own babies.

It sounds like your niece is a pretty, well-behaved little lady. Her parents are so lucky. When I was younger I wasn't comfortable being with kids, but when my brother's children came I realized how they can pull at your heart until you feel as if your heart isn't yours anymore. They are so loveable and adorable. Watching them and being with them just made me want to get married so I could have my own children!

yes,children are also charming enough to make us love so much.my niece is so brave,when she gets hurt herself,she bears the pain and doesn't cry at all.that's precious ,that's many children cant reach.she is in a full-time kindergarten and only goes to home once every week on Saturday and goes to school on Sunday since she was four.this kind of schooling maybe very helpful for her to take care of herself and learn to be independent.

Aww, your niece sounds adorable. You describe her so well. I only have the one child who is now nearly 15, so no little ones in the house. I do however have a few younger ones in the family to spoil though. Children are great, and I am a manager in a children's day nursery. Because of my role I don't get to spend as much time as I used to out in the main rooms with the children, but get out there when I can. I love the time spent with them, and it is so rewarding to see when they learn something for the first time, or get praise for something, and then getting on with their own little games. The most rewarding is to sit back and generally observe them (we have to do this alot for our paperwork and their records) and watch their play. They are more natural when adults aren't involved and it's so funny to watch at times, and listen to their conversation. We look after children from 4 months up to 5 years in the nursery and then up to 10 years in the after school club. As much as I love all the babies I find the best rooms to work in are the older children as you can do so much with them. The ultimate reward though has to be when a child comes up, throws their arms around you and gives you a kiss or says they love you. This makes the job all worth while.

Hi,eveeee,i think your job is really worth doing.you can see children's innocent smile very often and also witness their daily growth.it's enjoyable.i will feel much more comfortable and cheerful when i am around children because at that time as if i am as young as they are.observing their action is also a pleasure,their innocent words make you cant help laughing.

err, is there a difference between kids and children? I think here in my country its different but I think its the same, ohh I really dont know. Anyway, I love kids. Well, little ones though. I really dont like them when they are in their annoying age. I like them when they are in 5 years of age and below. They are just so adorable, so cute, little angels. And I can fool them when they are in that age. Fooling them makes me really happy, especially when they dont want me to hug them, but when I show some candies, they will eventually hug me. So nice, so cute.

I do like little children but really love babies. They are so sweet and innocent. We have three, grown daughters who are wonderful. I love them all dearly and do everything I can to help them when and if they need help. We also have grandkids but we aren't able to spend much time with them since they are 1,200 miles away from us. It saddens me that I haven't been at their birthday parties or just be in their everyday lives. The youngest is 11 months and I am missing seeing her grow up. Maybe one day they will move closer to us. We can't move to where they are since my husband has a thriving business practice in the area where we live. I do get a chance to go visit them a couple of times a year.

I ille kids too. When i see their chubby cheeks, twinkling eyes, cherry lips i am poor in describing a child's beauty. All of above their innocence and cuteness makes us to caress them. Kids are really a grace. I haven't any little kids in my house. Thanks

i too like childrens n small kids but mostly i get attracted towards the small kids who r really very cute , they will not be knowing anything so innocent, i like their features, their little hands, little fingers, they will be so small n should be handled with a great care. first i use to just see other babies from the time i have one i really like it. but one thing what i dont like was when children dirty their diapers n a little elder childrens dirting theirself with chocolates but now i have to watch it again n again from my son doing this n has to clean it. its good to watch other childrens n also urs but handling them, taking care of them everything is so difficult n requires hardwork.

I have always liked babies and children. They are precious you know and they happen to be our future. I have a beautiful four year old myself. He will actually be five in September. That's already next month! I can't believe it sometimes. It seems like only yesterday I had given birth to him. Children bring a lot of joy to people who adopt them also I believe. I had a circumstance about six years ago when I needed to place my first son up for adoption. My husband who I wasn't married to yet and myself could not handle a child at the time because of personal and financial reasons. He is now in a wonderful home with a great and loving family never wanting for anything. That is what gives me the most peace. Children are to be appreciated and loved and need us adults or parents as good role models for the future coming. It seems that you yourself delight in the young people of today and that makes you a good hearted person. Thank you for your post.

Oh yes chenmeiyi, I do love kids so much. They bring such joy into my life. It's just impossible to be unhappy around sweet little children. To me, children are just a little breath of heaven. That's what I always felt about my little granddaughter who returned to heaven when she was only eighteen months old. Her smile could melt the coldest heart. I think your two little girls are lucky to have such a wonderful loving mother who loves kids. Nana

Ya. Kids are really so cute. My sister has two daughters. One is 8 and other is 5. I love those two very much. I saw every step of how a kid will grow. After three months a kid will start walking with four legs. By 9 or 10 months they will start speaking some words. At the age of one, they can walk properly. Have enjoyed seeing those. I am crazy about kids. Those innocent smiles, the hugs and kisses from them are gifts to us. Love them so much. Missing them now.. :(

I feel about children as I do about adults, some I like, some I don't. Nice children are fine. Unfortunately, I come from an area where nice children are few and far between. Of course, it's their parents fault, not theirs. Generally, I don't like other people's children because so many of them have been brought up to be rude, selfish and have been taught very little. It is nice to see good, intelligent children who have been brought up properly. If all kids were like mine and yours then I would love kids.

nope. I like some individual ones, like my partners neice and nephew, who are really sweet children, and fun to be around. but as a generalisation, most children I don't feel anything much for, and I have no desire for any of my own.

hello chenmeiyi Definitely, I love kids even I am still a single. I had been give a bless to raised up two kids, they are my niece and my nephew, children of my eldest sister. From the day they were born till now they are grown already, to be a young pretty lady and a strong and cute teenage boy. It was so amazing to see their everyday lives while they were growing. Hope someday I will have my own kids, by giving birth to them from my own womb. In proper ways of course :)

One feels really happy when cute kids or children are around. Their smiles, childish attitude, smartness etc. always attract people. None in the world will tend to dislike these kids and children. Their cheer you up and make life enjoyable. I too like kids and children.

A child is most often defined as a young human being between birth and puberty; a boy or girl.The legal definition of "child" generally refers to a minor, otherwise known as a person younger than the age of majority."Child" may also refers to a minor, otherwise known as a person younger than the age of majority."Child" may also describe a relationship with a parent or authority figure,or signify group membership in a clan,tribe, or religion; it can also signify being strongly affected by a specific time,place, or circumstance, as in "a child of nature" or "a child of the Sixties." Infant is used as a metaphore of future, pureness, innocence, of simple people, renewal. Attachment theory is primarily an evolutionary and ethological theory whereby the infant or child seeks proximity to a specified attachment figure in situations of alarm or distress,for the purpose of survival.The forming of attachments is considered to be the foundation of the infant/childs's capacity to form and conduct relationships throughout life. Attachment is not the same as love and/or affection although they often go together. Attachment and attachment behaviors tend to develop between the age of 6 months and 3 years. Infants become attached to adults who are sensitive and responsive in social interactions with the infant, and who remain as consistent caregivers for some time. Parental responses lead to the development of patterns of attachment hich in turn lead to 'internal working models' which will guide the individuals feelings thoughts and expectations in later relationships.There are a number of attachment 'styles' namely 'secure', 'anxious-ambivalent', 'anxious-avoidant',(all 'organized') and 'disorganized',some of which are more problematical than others.A lack of attachment or a seriously disrupted capacity for attachment could potentially amount to serious disorders. so you can say yes i love chilren and kids very much though donot have them yet.
