I have an embarrassing involuntary physical reaction that occurs just before a child is injured. My shoulders lift, my eyes squint and I usually jump back and then do a 180 in the air.
It’s like my brain and body are trying to keep me from experiencing a terrible event, or the movement is somehow preventing it. It is strange.
Last year, about a dozen customers were witnesses at Costco
This reaction from me. It happened when my 2 year old daughter fell out of the hospital
Cart and landed on the forehead.
It was one of the worst days of my life.
I learned a lot from this experience – above all
negative corrective actions for me. The only positive thing was learning that I did
was not the only father who has experienced it.
The key to emotionally recovering from the tragic
The incident talked to other fathers about it. It sounds bad, but having them shared
Her horror stories about my child’s injury to me made me feel better
– And every parent has one.
I am not sharing my story to prevent someone’s child
falling from the shopping cart onto a concrete floor – common sense and multiple
Disclaimers on the car can do that. My point is that if it happens to you
Talk about it. And if it happened to someone you know, help them recover.
“I don’t want to look …”
We usually put my 2-year-old in the shopping cart there
You should, but on that day we left them where you put your groceries.
Most of the time she stayed seated, but sometimes we had to tell her
sit down again
I thought she would be fine. These are usually the stories
“I thought she was fine.”
My wife and I were distracted when we looked at some furniture
I saw a sudden movement on the front of the car. She was up. Your hands were
onto the edge of the car and rose up. The only thing I remember
Next, her boots were up and her head was facing the polished concrete.
Cue embarrassing involuntary, freaky reaction.
The sound of her head on the floor made me sick.
People gasped. My daughter screamed.
My wife came to her first, picked her up and held her.
I looked for blood and tried to assess the situation.
“Is she bleeding?” I asked my wife.
“I don’t want to look,” she replied.
I looked at her head and luckily found no blood. However, on the right side of her forehead was a golf ball piping.
We dropped our cart and made an ice pack out of it
Property and went straight to the car. On the way I searched urgently
takes care of the internet and luckily we found one nearby.
We have brought their emotions under control in urgent care
Area when I filled out the paperwork. When we noticed that she wasn’t showing
I felt relieved when I saw signs of concussion or brain injury. But
When I saw my two girls in tears, I broke down.
The immediate feelings are sadness when you see your daughter
Pain, but then it quickly turns into guilt, humiliation, and dejection.
I should be the one who protects my daughter from harm. instead, my indiscretion led to it. She also has a purple knot on her head for two weeks, which is basically a billboard that says, “I have incompetent and irresponsible parents.”
It’s been a bad two weeks. I didn’t want to think about it
because I kept experiencing the terrible feelings I felt when it happened.
“Did I tell you the time …”
I was in the editorial office with Reno Dads, where I had the courage to bring up the incident. I was nervous.
Shortly afterwards, several callers answered with some
Art iteration of “Did I tell you the time …”
When I heard their stories, I realized that we as
People, everyone makes mistakes. Sometimes these mistakes are serious and all you can do
hope the consequences are not life-changing. In this case we were
Lucky she was fine.
The mere opening to other fathers set me up
the way to healing.
I’ll never forget that day at Costco. But I’m sure damn it
don’t make the same mistake and I hope my story will save someone’s life
Blame for a bad parenting mistake.
