Can we all just agree that more stories with Tony being awesome with kids should exist
I mean, c'mon, the man is basically a child himself, especially when it comes to Science.
Tony absconding with middle schoolers who are at SI on a field trip and taking them down to R&D to play with robots and lasers (The teacher is panicked. Pepper just rolls her eyes and goes down there to drag them back, knowing that Tony will probably just do this again).
Tony volunteering at a science camp for underprivileged kids (it’s a poorly kept secret that he is the anonymous donor that kept the science and robotics programs running at several schools in New York). He takes DUM-E with him and the kids adore the robot.
Tony quietly starting a foundation for kids who come from abusive homes, pouring his heart and soul into planning events for the kids to make them feel accepted and loved by the volunteers (he denies any involvement but Pepper and Rhodey know better).
Just…Tony loving and supporting kids and trying to make sure that they grow up better than he did.
