Are you one of the Mom's that freak out?

I know people react differently, so when one of your kids get hurt do you freak out or deal with the situation and keep going? I am talking hurt, like they broke their arm, not life threatening, but not something a bandaid would fix either.

  • I try to keep my cool so my kids don't freak out. My son fell in the shower when he was almost 5 and busted his forehead open. My mom was freakling, saying "Oh my God! Oh baby are you okay?! your head!!" and basically making him freak out more. So I tried to keep cool even though my stomach was twisting at the sight of all the blood. He got 6 stitches. Then when I got him home and settled, THAT is when I freaked! My kids were just in a car accident with their grandmother and when the cop came to our house to tell us, the first thing he said was they were ok, just shaken up. So when I saw them, of course they were crying and scared but again, I tried to keep my cool because I knew they were ok and they needed me to be ok so they wouldn't get more scared then they already were. Then when I was alone, I cried like a baby!

  • No. I usually remain calm during situations like that. Otherwise, my kids will feed off it and panic more. I

  • i am the bubble mom. Thats what my dh says anyway. my son is 5 and has never been seriously hurt. He fell of my dad's porch steps once when he was 2..i was so upset. His little face was all skinned up. I am very cautious though and am always telling him to be careful. I think i would freak out, honestly!!!

  • I'm all calm and everything on the outside and get things done. But on the inside I"m freaking out. But I realize that it will freak them out more if I show them I'm freaking so I don't show them.
