What makes children cry
I read the loveliest posting this week by Mumsnet, with contributions by different Mums – “reasons why my children cry”, with lovely accompanying video clips and pictures.
My two personal favourites were “because butterflies don’t get to see their children” and (with memories of J M Barrie’s Peter Pan), the little girl who was sad because she was standing on her shadow.
Both made me smile, and then got me thinking – as adults, do we ever automatically know what goes on inside a child’s head?
It reminded me of when my own (now adult) daughter was a child, and she was really, really upset that she had a headache……… she told me years later that she honestly thought it meant her head was going to fall off, and she was really scared.
So, when your child is upset, please take an extra moment to try to find out what the actual reason is – it may not be an obvious cause, and certainly not one that crosses our logical, adult train of thought.
I hope that you have enjoyed reading this blog.
