It has really really been helping with Jake. When he is sad and crying I quote the sad page (using a very wacky cry baby voice)...and he laughs.. almost like he can stop being so sad because he knows that someone actually understands that he is sad!
And I love "Angry"
"Angry is how I feel right now,"
I shout with a mighty roar.
I mostly want to frown and growl
and stomp upon the floor.
which is exactly what he does, so when I raise my voice and use monster tone and say those words he smirks and stops being so darn awful.
