Just a reminder that’s been rolling around my head since I started to work with 2 year olds:

Stupid things will come out of your actions or mouth if you are too:

  • Hungry
  • Angry
  • Lonely or
  • Tired

This is so evident, even with the littlest of children.  They can be so easy to get along with until they are suddenly off schedule – naptime or lunchtime approaches, and their little worlds just fall apart.

How do you avoid hitting the edge, so to speak?  What do you do when you find yourself in that place of too something, where everything seems bad?


One Response to “HALT”

  1. Jeanine Says:

    * Eat regularly & nutritionally.

    * Sleep regularly & adequately. (Naps permitted, if all else fails.)

    * Walk & other excercise. (with praise music, to focus on God’s love & reliability.)

    * Crawl up into God’s lap for a hug (with His book).

    * Focus on the good & beautiful …. (like Paul, in Philippians).

    * Head up and smile!

    * Seek out the company of a few close friends.
