Last night my sister-in-law showed me this video about validation. When she told me it would last for 16 minutes, I was a little skeptical, but wow--it was well worth the time. My children watched it with me, and it has had such a positive effect on our family.
We went to the movies with Eric's family today, and there was a nice lady from Australia taking the tickets. She seemed a little down (and maybe not in love with her job), and after the movie, Alia went up to her and said, "Thank you for all you do to make the movie theater a nice place to visit." So cute.
Enjoy the video!
