As parents we often ask our children do you want me to kiss your boo-boo? We may ask if they want a band-aid. Whatever it is many times we give children the sense that this act will fix everything. When I think of this I think of My Big Fat Greek Wedding where the dad swore that Windex fixed everything including a pimple.
I can’t recall ever doing such a thing with my own children however my daughter has the fix all for every boo-boo, scratch, upset stomach, and fever. I have no idea where she got it but her fix all is…..a wet paper towel. If she has a scratch she asks for a wet paper towel, if her tummy aches she asks for a wet paper towel. If she has a headache she will ask for….you got it…a wet paper towel.
Does your child have a fix all?
