someone found the link to the airbnb based on marzia's blog. you can see the lamp phil was talking about airbnb(.)com/rooms/11145603?location=Rye%2C%20United%20Kingdom&children=0&infants=0&adults=9&guests=9&s=zGd7CcwG
I remember talking to someone who said “I can’t handle when kids get so worked up over dumb things, like a papercut is the worst thing to ever happen to them”
if they’re 3-4, hopefully it IS the worst thing to ever happen to them. out of nowhere there’s hurt, there’s red, there’s BLOOD??? FROM A PAPER?? of course they’re flipping out jesus christ wouldn’t you
i feel like such a huge part of dealing with and loving the babies is understanding what that post said: everything is new to them. sometimes it’s fun and amazing (seeing snow, touching a baby chick) but sometimes it’s very overwhelming.
imagine a carnival, a mall, a loud crowded place, having never experienced it before.
a thing I hear in teaching a lot is “little people have big emotions. it’s our job to create calm, not add to their chaos”
running a studyblr as an adult is so strange. i see kids as young as 13 having breakdowns about grades, isolating themselves from everyone because they don’t quite fit in, not knowing how to deal with very real mental health problems… it’s not my place as someone significantly older than you to try and intervene in your personal life, but i hope you all know that if you ever want advice - about studying, dealing with life, or just which colour to change your blog to - or need someone to listen to you when you’ve had an awful day, my inbox is always open. things will get better for you, and you will be okay, i promise.
