Safe to be Sad

Emotional Health Includes all Emotions

There seems to be a belief surrounding parenting that implies we are doing something wrong if our children have a negative emotion. This is the most false idea we could possibly have. We are the safe space for our children to fall apart. We want to help our children understand and accept the full range of normal emotions. When your children are having a negative emotion, instead of feeling like you are failing, take it is a compliment of your good parenting.
