As Parents We Just Try Our Best

As parents, all we want to do is protect our kids from hurt. I’m not talking about the physical hurt. I’m talking about the raw, emotional hurt. Their feelings.

When you have a child who isn’t very expressive of his feelings or doesn’t show emotions, it’s hard when something happens that affects them so much that their feelings do show.

When it is sadness. Where there are tears. And the hurt shows. And the worst part is they are too young to fully grasp and understand the true meaning behind “the why” of it.
