Remember this feels huge to them
Your child is navigating the world for the first time in the best way they know how. Things go wrong sometimes and as their most important jobs are going to school and playing with their friends, when these things go wrong it feels massive to them. When a five-year-old has a public falling-out in the playground, this might feel equivalent to us really messing up at a really big and important meeting at work. Their problems may seem small to us, but they feel huge to them, and it’s their perception that matters, not ours.
