“Don’t Cry Over Spilt Milk!”

October 22, 2009 by Kat  

Okay, this just drives me absolutely BANANAS.

Why do my 3 youngest children FREAK out when they spill milk? Wouldn’t you think they just cut their jugular when they simply mess up a word on their XMas list to Santa? Have they ever heard of an eraser? Or, a cross out? White out?  Or — hey, here’s an idea — what about calmly starting over?

I recently typed in the simple search term in Google: “children’s emotions“, thinking maybe it would offer some advice about calm phrases to say to them, instead of (me, subsequently) flipping out BACK at them. Ironically — and this is probably the best lesson for mom, dad, and kids like — we should all realize that in the scheme of things, my kids are doing just fine. It could always be worse. Geez… Look at this list (!). Crying over spilled milk ain’t so bad.
