It’s OK to Cry

Sometimes life is hard, pain comes into all our lives and with that comes the associated emotions.

It is a privilege for a parent to be able to teach their children how to handle all of life’s experiences. If your children see you grieve and cry when the situation calls for such emotion, it gives them the freedom to experience those same emotions.

On several occasions I have heard friends or family say, “I don’t want anyone to see me cry”.  However…

There is a time for everything…a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance. Ecclesiastes 3:1,4

The release of emotions associated with a good cry is very healthy and it is especially important for sons to know that men can cry without their manhood being threatened. Teach your children about the realities of life and give them the freedom to express the appropriate emotions for each situation.

You don’t have to be so tough!

It’s OK to cry!
