When I became a parent, my focus was so much on making sure the baby was fed and milestones were being met, that I didn’t always stop to think about those tough conversations that were ahead of me. As parents, it’s our job to mold these young minds and when tough questions and conversations come up, it can sometimes be hard to find the right words to break things down for a child to understand.
The hard conversations about the ups and downs of life and dealing with disappointments and changes are often unplanned and difficult for kids to grasp, but we want them to learn from us. This mom was caught by her son during a rough moment that took her off guard and the conversation that followed was a really important one.
