6-year-old coaches little brother through tantrum using calming breathing technique

March 22nd, 2021

Kids are adorable in more ways than one. However, when it comes to life lessons, they still have empty glasses – that means they still have a lot to learn.

Let’s make emotional control as an example. Children are still far from the learning curve of controlling their emotions. They can be on extremes of both happiness and sadness. And as we all know kids, they will always find ways to get what they want.

It’s just that when they don’t really get it, they oftentimes throw in tantrums. It makes them emotionally uncontrollable.

Anyone who has raised a child can absolutely relate to this.

If you are a parent or someone who has already raised a child or children, then this scene is no longer new to you. Tantrums on kids are actually scary because it’s an outburst of emotions that even they can not control.

It’s the parent’s sole responsibility to calm down a child who’s throwing a fit. With their experience, they must know how to handle it properly. A parent should know how important it is for their child to get out of that outburst of emotions.

However, in this amazing video, it’s not a parent but a 6-year-old boy who walked his little brother through a very effective way of controlling an emotional outburst.

His name is Noah and he’s a breathing exercise master.

In a video clip shared on Twitter by their mom, Ashley West shows the incredible interaction between her boys. Noah, a 6-year-old boy, and his 4-year-old little brother, Cory.

The latter is about to throw a fit but his big brother is there to save him. Though Noah is also considered a kid, he is just a gradeschooler, he sure knows how to handle such a situation.

As Cory’s about to emotionally explode, his big brother tells him to calm down by doing a breathing exercise. He then demonstrates it by doing hand gestures all the while breathing in and out as well.

And the reason for the tantrum?

During this pandemic, family members, especially children, spend most of their time at home. And for little Cory, there’s nothing more fun to do than to play on his Nintendo.

However, the gaming console isn’t fully charged yet. When he realizes he can’t play his favorite game just yet, he then starts to act up. Thankfully, big brother is there to pacify the situation.

In just a few seconds of breathing in and out, Noah’s able to calm his little brother down, and it’s just too satisfying to watch them.

As it turns out, he learned the technique from his mom.

Ashley West says she’s been taking up classes to become a social worker. Their family is also into Yoga and it looks like Noah has been paying attention to their sessions.

It’s really best to teach them young, isn’t it? The early lessons that you teach a kid will definitely pay off in the future. And for any life lessons, parents are truly a child’s first teacher and home is the foundation of each of those lessons.

In just a week, the 21 seconds video has already amassed a whopping 7.3 million views!
