10 things to say instead of ‘stop crying’

  1. It’s okay to be sad
  2. This is really hard for you
  3. I’m here with you
  4. Tell me about it
  5. I hear you
  6. That was really scary, sad, etc.
  7. I will help you work it out
  8. I’m listening
  9. I hear that you need space. I want to be here for you. I’ll stay close so you can find me when you’re ready.
  10. It doesn’t feel fair.
