Sometimes our favorite characters provide the best reminders. Perhaps this story will help the next time your child comes home in a mood.

Pooh and Piglet Talkin

“Today was a Difficult Day,” said Pooh

There was a pause.

“Do you want to talk about it?” asked Piglet.

“No,” said Pooh after a bit. “No, I don’t think I do.”

“That’s okay,” said Piglet, and he came and sat beside his friend.

“What are you doing?” asked Pooh.

“Nothing really,” said Piglet. “Only, I know what Difficult Days are like.  I quite often don’t feel like talking about it on my Difficult Days either.

“But goodness,” continued Piglet. “Difficult Days are so much easier when you know you’ve got someone there for you.  And I’ll always be there for you, Pooh.”

And as Pooh sat there, working through in his head his Difficult Day, while the solid, reliable Piglet sat next to him quietly, swinging his little legs...he thought that his best friend had never been more right.
