Take ten to teach sympathy...

I taught my oldest daughter how to be sympathetic and comforting today without even knowing it.

She wanted to ride bikes outside, but my son was sick. I said "Do you see that your brother doesn't feel good? He probably wants to rest." And I leaned down and kissed his head. She looked at me and said "Yes" and then she said "It's okay, Easton." and moved close to him and she kissed his cheek.

Score one for mom! She understood, felt sympathetic, showed comfort and did not get upset about not being able to go outside. (All without me trying to teach her anything!)

Take Ten!
