200 Times a Day
January 23, 2020
Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.
-Albert Schweitzer

"One morning a number of my toddlers crowded around the mirror, smiling and laughing as they saw each other’s reflections. At one point they seemed to share a moment of total connection, which sparked exuberant laughter and dancing around in a circle...," writes Deb Curtis in her popular book, Really Seeing Children.

"Research shows that children laugh approximately 200 times a day, whereas adults laugh only 15-18 times. People who laugh more are healthier, experience less stress, are less likely to be depressed, and may even have an increased resistance to illness or physical problems. The children seem to be on to something that we adults have lost...

"My observations of children support the research that shows that laughter is less about humor and more about creating social connections, where people build feelings of camaraderie and pay close attention to each other."

"Really Seeing Children shifts the perspective of observing children from a dull, burdensome activity that’s done to meet assessment requirements to a delightful, invigorating, thought-provoking experience where educators can’t wait to document and share the stories of amazing children. This book expands the early education field’s view of the value of the everyday moments in children’s lives and refines adults’ abilities to see the development that occurs in children’s play, relationships, and their environment."
