There is this thread you might want to read. It hasn't been added to in a few months though.
And I'm not a caregiver, but I have a big sister side and I like when other littles are sweet and adorable (both little boys and girls!). And I have an instinct to help when they are shy or nervous, or just having a problem.

Children don't worry what they look like to others. They are 100% themselves. When we get older, we learn to fit in society by submerging those parts of ourselves that our culture looks down on. We don't want to be rejected by our parents. We don't want to be rejected by our peers. Growing up may include re-embracing ourselves even if we must stand alone.
Thank you for being here as I re-embrace the Self I'm meant to be.
(Note: I'm not looking for a caregiver right now. Please don't ask.)
