Well I speak to children just like I speak to everyone else, respectfully unless they are rude to me. Then you have to say stop that.

Don't forget children are people.

I never forgot the one time I was sent to pic lil sis up from dental surgery (sis was afraid of dentists so instead of having a filling they opted to just remove the tooth in hospital) and the nurse talked to me as if I was a toddler. I gave her this look I was 17, old enough and responsible enough to collect my sis so that was uncalled for.

It if was just a child that randomly goes up to me and tried to talk then I'd would probably say I'm busy and got no time to talk but say it in a friendly way so it doesn't come off as rude. But if it was a friends child or something then I would talk a bit but keep it child friendly

hmm are you pregs? Having the urge to speak to children.

I tease the hell out of kids that are family members. I pretty much ignore stranger's kids unless they need help or ask questions that I can answer.

I don't really speak to children in my daily life.

I don't. I throw them back in their cage and tell them to eat the remaining scraps of dog food and wallpaper they've got left.

Just talk to them, I'm a child at heart and children seem to recognize this, can find myself playing games with them outa the blue and if it makes them happy im happy, I'm an adult, no one said I cant have fun


This is true, that children recognize it when you like them.

I love children and all children I've met seem to love me I was even a babysitter a few years ago and I enjoyed it a lot. The parents were always happy with me because they could see the happiness of their children in their eyes when they saw me and when children like you they trust you and show you love.

I always speak to children with love and kindness.

the first thing to remember is that they do not speak the same language as us. they may sound like it but their understanding of the world is so slim that the very definitions of words are different than our understanding.

in short you can't, even if you think you are, you aren't really.

I tend to talk to toddlers in the family like I would a very cute dog or house cat.

I don't do that. They just don't listen.

Maybe if I was daddy material they would straighten up.

But I'm just a laid back uncle.

Maybe if I had children, that's a totally different story, I would be strict as fuck, but always know when enough is enough.

Nice but a bitch will be treated like one.
