Hello mylotters Family! Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening Today, I find myself thinking how I can share this wonderful experience of me and my husband with strangers kids, everytime we go out to visit a grocery store & supermarkets I may not have a kid of my own but most of the times these kids from a strangers helps me feel good Yesterday, me and my husband went to a grocery store and suddenly while looking something good at the vegetable area a cute kid just said "Hello" and with a nice smile and that moment it just made me feel good and said "Hello" back How wonderful! it was greeted by a strangers kids and sometimes made me smile when seeing them so happy after their parents put their requested chocolates at the cart they jumped and giggle like it was something big How about you mylotters? Did you ever experienced being happy at the kids of a strangers? Photo from pbs.org (google)

We have lot of stranger kids on the streets especially market day. They are begging. We are being tasked by their respective parents to beg for money. If you give them something to eat they refuse it.

Oh I think I experienced that when we had our vacation in province in Roxas City We gave them some food and threw it away and said that they need money not food I got scared with them and told my husband not to go out far away that maybe their parents might do something not good to us for not giving them money

@sallypup Here in our underdeveloped country, our government has a conditional cash transfer (CCT) for the poor and the needy as long as they are registered and accredited by the Department of Social Services. Nevertheless, thete are still strangers who keep on visiting our place for begging.

I like kids in general, so wherever I go, I tend to wink or smile or make them laugh... Just teased a little 6 months old a few days ago, she gave me several toothless smiles, quite funny.

Oh I absolutely love when strangers kids are friendly! My kids were never like this. My son has Aspergers and doesn’t like people especially strangers so he would glare at them and refuse to answer if a stranger tried to talk to him.

Oh yes! They are quite adorable. I was also at the grocery store. Not only did the child say Hello but asked me what I was doing. I said I was just trying to buy some mangos. They nodded as of giving me approval. Too cute!

@m_audrey6788 I often experience joy from the kids of others. Especially at the park, where I enjoy basking in the sun, and seeing all the kiddies have fun----Boy, I wish I was a kid again :)

I think it happens with all as kids are very cute and get attention easily by their noble nature. I do watch if there is any child even though child does not mind me. It may be because of the 'mother' in me

Just an hour ago, while riding with air-conditioned bus going home, at my back, a father and a son talking continously about different things. The kid keep on talking and talking. Though I find it boring from the father but I find it very light and entertaining when the kid is talking.
