Looking with a child’s eyes

What could we do better at if we did it looking with a child’s eyes?

When my daughters were younger, it always amazed me that they didn’t seem to notice gender or color.  They would get to know someone first before they made any judgments about them.  Which is how it should be.  When do we stop doing that?  Is it something that just happens as we grow older, or is it a learned behavior?  When Anna was younger, she gravitated towards the little boys.  She was best buds with one boy in particular.  They were inseparable and got along so well.  We moved before they realized they were not the same gender.  But shortly after that I noticed she realized boys were different and didn’t “play” with them as much.

It’s easy to be quick to judge, but I think if we made a conscious effort to look at people with a child’s eyes, the world would be a much better place.
