Adapting to new situations

Dear Max,

Yesterday you started at your new day care center. Its healthier, friendlier and more consistent but it still takes some getting used to. You may only nine and a half months old but your reactions to starting something new are not unlike your elders.

You were upset. You resisted change. You probably felt betrayed by your parents. You didn’t know what to do. 

As you get older you will be presented with new situations to adapt to frequently. Take it in stride. Adapting to new situations won’t kill you, it’ll only make you stronger and smarter.

Think of yourself as water swirling around a rock in a stream. The water moves around the rock gracefully and continues on its path. The water doesn’t stop at every rock. 

Love,

Daddy
