Listen to children

They say remarkable things you may be less likely to hear from grown-ups.

Such as: “Baby cheetahs have markings like honey badgers to camouflage from predators. You pretend to be a mom cheetah and I’ll be the baby who just grew up and you tell me how proud you are that now I got my spots.”

Or: “Maybe bad people aren’t all the way bad and they’re actually more angry or lonely or confused.”
