The Hesitant Housewife has an excellent tip for interacting with kids, especially little ones. She called it "stop, drop, and talk." I hadn't heard it expressed that way before, and I like it! I'm familiar with the concept. When a child wants to talk to you, or you want to talk with a child, stop what you're doing, get down to their eye level, and talk with them.
I'm sure you've heard such advice before, but I found the reminder refreshing.
I hope you did as well.
