Do you allow yourself to cry when you need to?

If you do, you are aware of the benefits it has on your emotional and physical well-being.

If you don’t, you may not be in touch with your feelings and, in turn, may not allow your child to experience their feelings.

Anderson: I find it really hard to cry, except occasionally, like, beyond my control. But I always found it — especially when I was your age, Kyle — kind of a difficult thing. You say it’s a good thing, though.

Kyle: I think it’s a good thing. Because when something happens to you, it just is great to cry. Crying helps you. You are not weak. You are strong.

Here’s my tip: If your child cries and it’s obviously through experiencing an overwhelming emotion, be there with them.

They need to know it’s ok to express themselves, and that you accept their feelings.

Strong emotions are scary for children; the worst thing you can do is tell them to stop or send them somewhere to deal with them alone.  Naughty corners and time-outs can be harmful for this very reason.

A child needs their caregiver to tell them it’s ok and listen to them vent their feelings.  Try not to distract them or disregard their feelings.  What might seem trivial to you may be disastrous for them.

Just be there with them, and let them know it’s ok to cry, and that you love them no matter what.
