An Early CF Video – Corny, Funny, but Totally Practical!

Have you ever gotten in a morning meltdown with your child? Have you ever witnessed a food-splosion in your kitchen? Have you ever been the recipient of a food-splosion in your kitchen?

We have, and since it’s #ThrowbackThursday, we thought we’d dust off this six-year-old, 3-minute-long gem of a YouTube video from CF Co-Founder Jim Jackson.

So remember, when your child is having a rough time and you feel like you just might explode too:

  • Stop. Breathe. Smile. Laugh! Remember not to take yourself (and your child’s misbehavior) quite so seriously.
  • Connect with your child. Remind yourself (and them!) that you love them, no matter what, even if they hurled a pile of Raisin Bran at you.
  • Enlist your child to help make it right. Son made a food mess? Teach him how to clean it up! Daughter stomped a plant during playtime? Teach her how to plant a new one! Not only does this teach kids important practical life skills, but they learn that they can be a part of the solution and not just the problem.
