WHAT IS THIS BEAUTIFUL QUALITY
THIS IS THE ONLY FUCKING FROZEN POST I WILL EVER REBLOG BECAUSE IT IS OBVIOUS THAT WHOMEVER MADE THESE GIFS SOLD THEIR SOUL TO SATAN
THIS LOOKS BETTER THAN THE MOVIE WH AT
Either I have an ability to find things that I just recently started/learned about/have done…. Or the internet knows my life outside the internet O.o
This is so accurate. At school, we literally have children who will watch our facial expressions to see if them falling is as bad as they think it might be.
CORRECT CHILD INJURY PROCEDURE:
- do not react. at the most, maybe wince and go “ooooh”
- go over to the child to assess panic level and severity of injury
- if they’re like, dying, remain calm, but they’re probably not.
- look them in the eye and ask, “you okay?” they will nod. possibly all teary-eyed. then ask, “are we gonna need to cut it off?”
- the child is thrown off. if they giggle, you’re in the money. if they do not, put a bandaid on and do some sympathetic patting. they are probably a little teary. let the sad little bug sit out for a minute. they will quickly get bored.
- works every time
Okay, no, I actually have the best story ever with this stuff.
Years ago when I was in nursery and surrounded by little kids about 2-4 years old, I was playing with a little boy named Landen. Landen accidentally smashed his finger, and instantly looked up at me, all kinda freaked out because, hey! That hurt!
It surprised the hek out of me so all I did was look kind of shocked, and quickly followed up his little expression of what-the-hey-hey-the-car-bit-me with a, “Are you okay?”
He just shook his head a little bit, teary eyed, and held his finger up, and asked, “Kiss it better?”
So I did!
Tears gone, all worry poofed away, and he’s giving me the biggest grin ever, all bouncy and cheerful again. He goes, “All better!” and picks his toy car back up like nothing happened.
And THAT’S when I learned that kisses really do make everything better.
How about this gem: When I was a kid, maybe barely past 1 to almost 2 years old (whatever age it is when kids start runnin’ around after learning how to walk), I was runnin’. Now then I was an unbalanced little baby, and my clumsy stupor, I ran my face straight into the wall.
My Mom, bless her heart, was watching the entire thing, and after I ran into the wall, she winces, but instantly thinks “Oh man, I don’t want to have to deal with crying… Uhh… Let’s try something,” and so she sits up a little, starts to pretend to laugh, and says “Ooooh that’s so FUNNY. That was REALLY funny!
I looked up at her, and apparently got this grin on my face that said “Oh boy! I can make mom laugh!” and then turned back to the wall, and slammed my head back into it!
This got my mom laughing for real! Which just made me slam my head against the wall more. Mom couldn’t stop laughing for a good long while, but I think eventually had to pull me away from the wall.
So yea, the way you react to a child TOTALLY determines their reaction. Reacting negatively provides a negative reaction, and positively provides a positive reaction, and reacting in a way that makes the kid want to do it again could be dangerous… But also hilarious.
