Dads are awesome. They get you an ice-cream, help you make a mess, wrestle with you…However, dads can be there when it gets tough and this dad deserves a round of applause for what he did with his little girl, teaching her how to handle anger and bad feelings.
Randy Gaines was playing with his daughter and called her a name to tease her but she was just not in the mood for it.
So, instead of being upset with her and letting her go until her mood changed, Randy decided to talk to his little girl. Here’s what he said:
You don’t always have to be happy, you don’t always have to be silly or funny, you don’t have to be anything. The important thing is—whenever you’re feeling that way—to not just stay there all the time. You want to accept it, you want to honor it, you want to acknowledge it, and let it go.
The video’s caption explains the wife’s feelings and thoughts about the situation:
My heart explodes when he connects to his girls like this. No yelling. No screaming. Talking. Discussing emotions and why we have such feelings…I am so blessed and so thankful to have this man as my other half. Our girls are blessed to have him as their father. Thank you, Randy Gaines, for being you!
And what a good reason she has to be proud and happy. Well done, Randy for being the kind of parent all kids in this world should have. Share this video if you support this kind of parenting!
