My 4 month old son Ari was crying when I tried to seatbelt him into his stroller.
I told him, “This is a good thing! You’re being strapped into your ADVENTURE MACHINE. You’re off on an adventure where you’ll see new things!”
Although Ari’s only 4 months, and can’t speak fluent human, he stopped crying!
I then wondered: “How might I relabel the scary or annoying things in my life, so I can refocus on their positive aspects?”
This is a terrific question to ask yourself as you go through your day. It’s a helpful fear and annoyance neutralizer!
