Raised Right

Children were playing at the recreation area of an IKEA store when my five-year-old granddaughter motioned for a small boy to stop. She knelt down before him and retied his flopping shoelaces—she had only just learned to tie her own.

No words were spoken, but after she finished, both smiled shyly, then turned to race off in different directions.
