I doubt this mother will wear her mask when she takes her child home. Thankfully. The baby will likely learn that a smile indicates pleasure, comfort, love, stability. It will probably see daddy and siblings smile. Smiles equal love, it learns.
Mom works outside the home. She leaves the baby at a day care. Suddenly no one smiles anymore.
I saw a snippet of day care worker trying to get a small child to wear a mask. She was kind to the child (the child was sitting, but I think it was too small to stand or walk, I would guess about 10 month old) but there was no way she would win the battle except by wearing the child out when it cried or screamed itself to sleep. I can’t find the video to which I am referring, but there is a similar one at https://video.search.yahoo.com/search/video?fr=mcafee&ei=UTF-8&p=cay+care+worker+tries+to+make+infant+wear+a+mask&type=E211US105G0#id=1&vid=2b8a47af8c36df2050ad598a49
If you watch the above mentioned video, you will see that the care taker tried to encourage the child in positive ways by verbally trying to reward him. This child is older but he cannot be coaxed into leaving the mask on. Again he will probably wear out and drop off to sleep, or scream until he gets is way. Then we will wonder why he learns to scream to get his way!
Before masks and mask mandates, Department of Human Services would have charged parents with child abuse for allowing their child to be treated like this!
Smiles equal love, it learns. Masks equal abuse, it believes.
(Obviously I know children sometimes have to wear masks in hospitals, but it would be sedated before this kind of treatment would continue.)
