My daughter,who teaches at a local Day Care, told me about an incident where a little boy got extremely upset over a game he was playing with another child. It seems that the little boy was having a hard time convincing his friend that “winners go first!” when it came time to start a new game.
All of this resulted in a major melt down, and my daughter told the upset child to go sit in the thinking chair until he calmed down, and then they would talk about it. After a few minutes in the thinking chair the little boy was still very upset, so my daughter asked him if there was anything she could do to make him feel better.
His response? “Yes, a hug”!
So he got his hug and amazingly all was right with his world. For now.
Sometimes all it takes is a hug, and it doesn’t matter if you’re six or sixty six!
Have a great evening!
