If things are tough in your family I’m sure you’ve been on the end of some well meaning comments.
“At least you know what you’re dealing with.”
“At least you’ve got two other children who are well.”
“At least your kid isn’t dying like some others are.”
Have you noticed how flat these comments can leave you feeling?
This is a fantastic little video that might be worth sharing with friends and family.
In just a few minutes it defines what is helpful.
I think it is also relevant for how we speak with our children when they tell us how bad they feel.
I recommend you check out this video The Power of Empathy.
