I love the way this dad teaches his young son emotional intelligence in this video. The boy is crying about a sad song. Dad stays connected to his son, but doesn’t force him cheer up. He asks him what he wants, and the boy doesn’t want to change the song. He lets him fully experience his emotional response and shows him that it’s okay for boys and men to be sad without having to stuff, mask, or dull the feeling. No shame.
