I learned a lesson from a This American Life podcast, where they interviewed children.
Even at around age 7, children say they hate it when adults talk to them 'like kids' in a high tone baby voice.
They also seem to hate the question "how is school?".

I'm not often exposed to children, but when I am, I talk to them like a normal person.
Not sure yet, but in the few cases I have, I get the sense that people think I'm strange.
