A post goes viral, a mother in Poughkeepsie, New York, told a harmless humorous lie to her children.
The hilarious way mother Jessica found to deal with her two little girls, went viral, earning over 200k likes and over 120k shares.
Those of you that have children know only too well what it’s like to get your children to quieten down or get ready for bed.
Humorous mother Jessica, got a bright idea when she tried to get her two energetic children, Hannelore 3 and Emma 4, to settle down. The girls were jumping and chasing each other around.
To get them to settle down, she told them they have to lay still under the light to ‘charge’ their glow-in-the-dark pajama’s.
To add to the trick mother packed the PJ’s into the drawer every morning after they got dressed. Unexposed to light, the PJ’s dim and will not glow in the dark. The two girls tested their mom until they realized they had to lay under the light to charge their PJ’s before bedtime again.
What a brilliant idea. Sometimes mothers need to come up with ideas that can help them keep their sanity.
Both girls have Sensory processing disorder, which is a condition where the brain has trouble receiving and responding to information that comes through the senses. It was formerly referred to as sensory integration dysfunction, not currently recognized as a distinct medical diagnosis. Some people that have this disorder are overly sensitive to things in their environment or under-responsive to things around them.
In Jessica’s daughter’s case, they are overly sensitive to different stimuli. The lie white or little trick whichever you would like to call it, really improved the girls’ bedtime routine. As part of the sensory diet, they also use essential oils to help support sleep.
Who of you has not “lied” to their children, trying to diffuse a situation, or solely to encourage their children?
