A heartwarming video of a four-year-old Canadian toddler named Aldie having a heart-to-heart conversation with his mother has gone viral. The toddler expresses his emotions and thoughts in the video with an honesty that is uncommon in adults, let alone young children. Aldie tells his mother that not going outside hurt his feelings, saying, “Today, you did not make smart choices.” You hurt my feelings by not going outside, so I didn’t want to make a good decision.”
His mother responds with sympathy, but Aldie continues to express his feelings throughout the day, saying, “You know earlier? I couldn’t go outside, so I remained sad.”Aldie demonstrated a deep understanding of the complexities of emotions as the conversation progressed, telling his mother that it can be difficult for babies to understand why they can’t have what they want. “They’re still babies; they don’t understand they can’t do that,” he says. Earlier, I chose to be slightly agitated, but after a while, I was fine!”
His mother reassures him that it’s okay to be upset and that “sometimes we get upset, mad, and cry,” to which Aldie exclaims, “That’s emotions, mama!” The video concludes with a touching embrace between mother and son, reminding us all of the importance of empathy and understanding.
