Labelling so far is a favourite pass-time of human race. Adam and Eve must have started with labelling trees for the sake of recognition of those and the trend continued till today and forever. The difference is that trait has taken over us and we leave nothing at all un-labeled.
Especially of the things and people who cannot really counter discuss your opinions. Behind the back and on the face, it goes on. Well, that’s the fun part of the blessed tongue.
What bothers me is how we start judging a baby right from the day it arrives in your abdomen. Well, that’s on the lighter side. It becomes a problem when a baby is growing and depending on his or her moods, interacts or gets cut off from the people around. The only comfort zone being the home, and parents. Some kids open real fast, some take time. At every stage of their growth.
Should we start labelling them, making them feel conscious of who they are or respect their feelings at that moment?
What in general happens is people around send a message to parents, oh! Your child is reserved. He doesn’t interact. He doesn’t like company! And so on and so forth.
Yes, I am talking from my own experience. I wonder if human race was born to be alone…they were born to interact, to communicate, to experiment things. Everyone does, just the timing and atmosphere differs in which they are comfortable expressing their selves.
I am thankful for such ‘judgemental and social’ people around, they just made me more conscious of how I understand others’ kids and respect their attitude in life.
