Though you have heard "Don't judge", judgement comes unavoidably in day-to-day life. By the actions and behaviour of people, you either approve or disapprove. But always remember that everything is changing, do not hold on to the judgement. Otherwise your judgement gets solidified like a rock. It brings misery for you and for others.
Yet the world cannot move without judgements. Until you judge something as good or bad, you cannot do any action. You want to buy only good apples in the market. If someone lies to you ten times, the next time he speaks it could also be a lie - a judgement happens automatically.
See the possibility that people and things can change at any time and don’t hold on to judgements.
Often parents think that children should not cry and so they pamper them. This is not good. Crying helps to open up the lungs. If children are not allowed to cry, they will not know how to release pent-up emotions. A child who does not cry gets depressed. A child who laughs and cries freely cannot get depressed.
When children want to cry, they will find an excuse to do so. They may ask for something and when that is given to them, they will ask for something else. They may appear to be making a fuss but they just want an excuse to cry. Parents might try to pacify them by giving them many things because they like to see their children smiling. But this will not work. They tend to forget that children like crying for some time and that it is good for their health.

Just be your natural self. Simplicity, honesty, contentment, creativity - these will influence all the people around you.
