“Get comfortable in the uncomfortable.”

I love this picture. Two totally calm men waiting for the tantrum of the little girl to pass. The two men are the father and grandfather of the two-year-old girl, who lay on the floor and started to tantrum in the middle of the mall.

Neither of the men loses patience, pisses off, or yells at her. They just wait quietly. You are not simply giving her what she wants, and you are letting her express her emotions, in this case her anger at not getting what she wants..

Nobody feels embarrassed about the show the little girl is putting on.

The father’s own words when posting this photo explain everything:

′′This post is about one thing and one thing only. Get comfortable in the uncomfortable.

There are no perfect parents, but one thing mine taught me was not being a parent depending on what others think. My dad always let me feel what I needed to feel, even if it was in public and embarrassing. I don’t remember him telling me: ‘You’re embarrassing me! ‘o’ Don’t cry! ‘. It wasn’t until recently that I realized how important it was for my own emotional development. Our kids are learning and processing so much information and they don’t know what to do with all these new feelings that come up.”

Let us learn to be comfortable in the uncomfortable. Let us learn to deal with our children’s tantrums, with patience and tranquility. Children are children . 💗💕
