Mental note

When comforting a child that is having recurring nightmares, it is okay to flex one’s muscles, stand tall, and demonstrate fatherly strength to reinforce notions of security. It is not okay, however, to shout a penetrating “HA” to buttress the father’s power–the child does not seem to understand the shout in that context, noted.
