Disclosure: I am joyfully partnering with SoulPancake in an effort to spread happiness. Regardless, all opinions are 100% my own.
They say the dad is a daughter’s first man to love. I sure hope that is true with all four of my daughters, as well as my son. I often wonder how much the kids really “get me.” How much do they actually take in as I go through the daily grind? Do we fully understand each other?
Science of Happiness
These were questions SoulPancake had for their Science of Happiness series as well. So, they put it to the test with their latest episode. They wanted to see if kids can sense their parents’ emotions. I can tell you that around here… my kids are pretty good at figuring it out. Watch the video to see what you think.
So? Now what are you thoughts? As a father, I think I teared up a little. Well, let’s just say that I di. But it’s because I know the struggles of not having a job and needing to provide for your family. Those kids touched a soft spot in me for sure. It’s amazing to see how well kids can pick up on the little things their parents dream about or even the daily struggles they face. They are much smarter than we give them credit for sometimes.
Plus, here is a fun fact about this video: it was done in collaboration with Zach Braff’s new movie, “Wish I Was Here.” Zach plays a struggling father trying to find his purpose in life while on a journey with his kids. It comes to theaters on July 18th and is in correlation with the Science of Happiness video above.
