This is so accurate. At school, we literally have children who will watch our facial expressions to see if them falling is as bad as they think it might be.
Grayson does this. He’ll fall down, look up and instead of Rebecca and me always running to pick him up we’ll ask him, “Are you ok?” He’ll reply with a solid or sometimes teary, “Ok” and then rise to his feet before we give him a hug.
My parental guilt, however, hears him saying, “Yeah, I’m ok. No thanks to you. Where were you? Never mind. I’ll address this again in my teenage years.”
