Good Kids

Kids in this country are amazing. Whenever they approached our house to trick-or-treat and saw I was holding a toddler, they’d remove their scary masks and other spooky parts of their costumes in order to avoid scaring her. Then I’d ask them to put it all back because Klara is too little to get scared and she loves all of the Halloween stuff, especially zombies and scary clowns.

The point, though, is that they’d know that it’s important not to scare the toddler and would make an effort to be kind. I come from a place where kids and adults would invariably do the exact opposite and go out of their way to be mean.
