Smiling Begins with Children



“Why are they sad and glad and bad? I do not know, go ask your dad.” 
Dr. Seuss

Shinichi Suzuki, violinist, educator and humanitarian said that “Children learn to smile from their parents.”  Even so, whenever I think of a perfect smile, I remember when my baby boy smiled at me for the first time.  It was pure, without any artifice and it was all for me.

Gena Lee Nolin, actress and model, said, “My children are the reason I laugh, smile and want to get up every morning.”

Smiles begin in homes, around the dinner or computer table, sharing a pizza or working on a math equation. Children deserve our very best smiles.

“If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love. Don’t be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning ‘Good morning’ at total strangers.” 
Maya Angelou
