I knew that there are no accidents in this life. That everything happens for a reason. Yet we always get to choose how we will experience what happens to us here. – Jeff C. Olsen
Life happens, some ‘good’ and some ‘bad’. When a child can’t find their toy we as adults can see that it’s not a huge problem, but the child can’t see that. We also hope that the child can grow from such an experience and that’s where the incident might be valuable.
With some experience the child learns that losing a toy is not a life-ending situation. Often the toy can be found or a new one might appear instead. The child learns that there might not have been a real need to overreact ! The choice on how we react and process any incident is always up to us.
