100 Shared Laughs
October 8, 2020
A good laugh heals a lot of hurts.
-Madeleine L’Engle

“What do you think is funny and how often do you laugh?” asks Deb Curtis in her best-selling, book, Really Seeing Children. “If humor is an antidote for many ills and offers useful benefits, then finding ways to have more of it can brighten our lives. A good sense of humor is a tool that children and adults can rely on throughout life to:

  • see things from different perspectives
  • be spontaneous
  • grasp unconventional ways of thinking
  • see beyond the surface of things
  • enjoy and participate in the playful aspects of life
  • not take yourself so seriously
  • build strong relationships and get along with others

We have a great resource in children when it comes to increasing the humor, laughter and joy in our lives. Think about the statistic that children laugh 200 times each day. If you are with them even half a day, that is 100 shared laughs a day. All it takes is slowing down to see, and appreciate children’s humor!”
