One of the best mom moments in TV history. I wish more parents knew how important it is to validate their children’s feelings.
an interaction with my mom would be something like this:
Me: mom, I’m really sad and having really dark thoughts and taking medication for it.
Mom: omg, what did I do to deserve this? What is wrong with me? I’m so sorry, it’s all my fault *starts crying*
Me: mom, please don’t cry. It’s not your fault. And it’s not too bad, I might even stop taking the medication next week the doctor probably exaggerated.
me: please, don’t be sad. You’re a great beautiful mom and haven’t done anything wrong. I’m happy, look *smiles with her white teeth*
