What amazingly compassionate thing have you ever seen a very little kid do?
Let’s keep it to 6 and under. I was picking my grandson, Ryan, up from pre-K one afternoon. As the parents were bundling their kids up, a child next to Ryan was trying desperately to tell his mother something. However, he had some sort of severe speech impediment (maybe stuttering…I don’t know) and just couldn’t get the words out. Ryan glanced over at him and gently said, “His coat. The sleeves are in his coat.” (The arms of his sweater were bunching up in the sleeves of his coat…)
The child sagged with relief and said, “YES!!!!” Mom fixed the problem.
The teacher said that Ryan does that ‘all the time.’ He could size up at a glance what the child was trying to say, and convey it for him. She said she thought it was pretty amazing for a four-year-old.
