You may have seen those posts on social media showing photos of young children with little hearts drawn on their wrists or hands.

In case you were curious to find out the meaning of those doodles, the video below is just for you.

Be prepared to see something really sweet and touching, while sending an important message on how to protect and support your child.

Liz Petrone spoke about her son Luca’s struggles with severe anxiety. One day the worried boy burst into tears when he got on the school bus.

Although Liz attempted to comfort him from the fear as much as she could, it didn’t help.

So the next morning she decided to give her son a “gift” to make him feel better.

She gave him a peck on the wrist and drew a heart on the place she’d kissed.

The boy would look down at the heart on his wrist and know that he is loved, and that everything is going to be okay.

If your child suffers from anxiety, there are a few things you can do to provide emotional support for them.

First of all, reassuring your little one that everything is alright may not always the best idea.

When you are anxious, you desperately want to believe that there is nothing to worry about, but your brain won’t let you.

Reassure your children that you understand how scary it is and that you will be by their side until they are feeling secure and unafraid again.  

Create a “worry character” together with your child and give it a name.

While you’re doing this, have your son or daughter describe the character in detail, for instance, when it appears the most, how it behaves, how it feels, or when it goes away.

This will help you find out more about how your child’s really feeling and how they are coping with their anxiety.

      Hello Angle#3,

      Charlie here. I’m glad you brought this up. For if you see a child with a doughnut symbol printed on his palm that means he has eaten over a THOUSAND doughnuts and made the Thousand Doughnut Club. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

      He has the right to demand doughnuts for free (2 per day please) when he enters my doughunt shops and I will personally come out to greet him.

      Many kids tell me how when they are feeling sad or lonely, and look at my doughnut symbol, they tell me instead of crying, they start to drool and can hardly wait to get to the nearest doughnut shoppe and they tell me how all their troubles all go away. :lol: :lol:


      Charlie (saving mankind through happy doughnut-lov’n children) :lol: :lol: <- :wink:
