GIVE A CHILD AN APPRECIATION FOR BEAUTY
"Look baby! A precious little flower! It's so pretty. See the beautiful lilac colour with the gentle white stripes coming from the centre. See how the stripes go all the way to the edges? What are the little pieces like inside? Can you see them?"
"Gentle with the flower ... oops."
Babies like to REALLY explore lovely things.
Choose appropriate things for them to explore so their lives aren't full of "Don't Touch!" "Stop!" "Leave it!".
If you happen to have a priceless Ming vase (!) then PUT IT AWAY while your precious ones are little. :o)
