Awareness of Others

8 Oct

When is it that kids start to be aware that others around them are also in need or are also important? From the moment of birth a baby is the center of attention; it has to be – for the long, fragile time he/she needs to go through before some form of reasonable independence can be achieved.
Yesterday I was so surprised by my son; who has begun a stage where everything is now ‘Mine’ ‘Mine’ Mine’. It was morning and Stephen was playing on the bed with Kathy and I. He did a backward dive smack bang into my nose – OUCH (to me, Stephen did not even feel it). Hold my nose in pain the concerned little face filled my vision, head tilted to one side, “Arealright?” Stephen asked. “Yes I am, Stephen”. Wow
