Dear Big E,
Sometimes four year old emotions are so big… the kind of big that makes you want to turn around and punch the person next to you, or lunge at them to bite. They cause you to scream and cry and shriek with such abandon. It’s hard because the world is big, and it doesn’t always go your way. There is so little that you can control and so many decisions are made for you. The adults in your life don’t always give you all the information, and often it wouldn’t make sense to you if they did. You know emotion and you know reaction. But as you grow, you will also learn discipline and control. It will come, but while we wait, I promise to sit with you and help you learn along the way.
