Staying calm

Featured on the Hong Kong Economic Journal (March 28, 2019)

I love this quote by author and child-advocate L.R. Knost – “When little people are overwhelmed by big emotions, it’s our job to share our calm and not join the chaos”.

First of all, I think it’s important to remember that little people can have big emotions. The emotions of feeling frustrated, angry, worried or anxious don’t come in small sizes for small people – they can manifest themselves in big ways. And for little people who have less ability to self-regulate, these big emotions can be very chaotic.
