Oh, the things kids are allowed to do here. Oh what they get away with at the malls.
Here is my small friend climbing on the store displays, talking to the mannequin, and playing with the decorations.
Adults are tolerant and eager to please children. There is a greater value placed on them as people, as an investment, as the future, than I find in the US.
As a child, I remember pushing strollers around in the Gerber factory store whenever I went there. One employee lady didn't want my brother and I to do that. I thought she was mean. I only liked to go the store when the nice lady was working. It was no fun to worry about being yelled at, but how could you know ahead of time who was going to be working any given day?
Well, here, my small friend doesn't have to worry about that. He can get away with anything.
Just see how big his smile is.
