A Secret for Parents: Keep Looking Up

Infants need to cry to tell their parents they need food or cleaning before they can talk and also to exercise their lungs a little. But sometimes they cry out of confusion or for no good reason at all. It’s just the way of all babies and should should be greeted with patience not anger.

The wise parent can distract, calm and teach children to look upward in times of stress.
I would look at the ceiling in these moments and ask my child if they saw a blue streak of light flash across the ceiling, sometimes making a swooshing sound to illustrate the point. Their heads would incline upward and almost instantly the crying would stop.
For the young and old it’s hard to cry or be sad when you’re looking up. So keep looking up!
