Later, when he showed it to Dad and pointed out the parts, he was sad. When we asked him to tell us about his chick, he said the other kids at school had a nose on their chicks and he didn't know to put a nose on his until it was too late. He said the other kid's chicks were better than his. We told him we loved his chick because he made it. Even if it looked a little crazy, we loved it. I named it 'Crazy Chick'. He said, "No, it is Chick Chick." Dad asked if he could take Chick Chick to his office. Our son smiled and obviously felt better.
Taking a little time out to talk about Chick Chick allowed us to find out about our son's tender feelings. We were able to reassure him and tell him how much we love him no matter what. It may have seemed like a little incident and maybe it really was, but I am glad we were able to help on this one! I hope he will always trust us enough to share his true feelings with us!
