15 Lessons About Care That We Can Learn From Children
1. Care within a family is contagious and starts young.

“Can you give me a hand?”

Because every adventure is better with friends!
4. They prove that sharing is caring.
Because half a milkshake is better than none.

Sometimes you’d rather just hug it out.

If you care enough, you might even get an onstage shout-out.

Because imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
