Women Surround Crying Mom Of Tantruming Toddler At Airport
Actions speak louder than words and sometimes, they touch the heart. An extremely heartwarming incident happened at Los Angeles International airport few days ago.
Beth Dunnington was travelling out of LA and she witnessed something so touching, she had tears in her eyes. Beth took to Facebook to share the incident.
“A toddler who looked to be eighteen or so months old was having a total meltdown, running between the seats, kicking and screaming, then lying on the ground, refusing to board the plane. His young mom, who was clearly pregnant and traveling alone with her son, became completely overwhelmed she couldn’t pick him up because he was so upset, he kept running away from her, then lying down on the ground, kicking and screaming again.
“The mother finally sat down on the floor and put her head in her hands, with her kid next to her still having a meltdown, and started crying.”
What happened next touched Beth’s heart and it touched ours too.
Six to seven women from the waiting area (including Beth) walked up and surrounded the distressed mom. Each of them then did something to calm the toddler and the mom down.
“I sang ‘The Itsy Bitsy Spider’ to the little boy… one woman had an orange that she peeled; one woman had a little toy in her bag that she let the toddler play with; another woman gave the mom a bottle of water.Someone else helped the mom get the kid’s sippy cup out of her bag and give it to him.”
The beauty of the incident is that none of the women spoke to each other. They just acted as if they knew what was to be done. Each one knew they had a mission that needed to be tackled.
“It occurred to me that a circle of women, with a mission, can save the world. I will never forget that moment,” Beth added.
When women stand up to each other, it gives us the strength and the confidence to take over the world and do the impossible. A kind word, a nod of acceptance and a helping hand without being judgemental is what we need to tide along. We at Babychakra aim to do just that, don’t we?
