I think one of the worst things for me as a parent is to see my child cry.
I want to hug the tears away and fix the hurt. Sometimes you can’t and it is all part of life’s process to turn them into a mature adults. I get that. I then help my kids to understand this and to work through their feelings.
Sometimes it’s unfair and nothing you can think of can even remotely make it sound fair or okay. Those hurt.
When the tears are because of the way someone close to him handles / communicates or treats another person then I’m just royalty pee’d off.
My kids are emotionally caring people. I have taught them from little kids to always put themselves into the other person’s shoes. To have empathy. This is what they expect other people to have as well.
Then someone close to them doesn’t and treats another with disrespect and my son ends up crying for that person. This is when I see red. “My tor val af”
I use it as a life lesson but flip man, treat other people with respect.
