When Ashley L. Michelle’s 4-year-old son Cory started to have a meltdown, his 6-year-old brother Noah came to the rescue.
“Breathe,” Noah instructed his brother as he demonstrated how to breathe deeply in, and slowly exhale out. He continued to do the breathing exercises with his little brother until he was totally zen and no longer crying.
According to Michelle, Cory started to have “a little meltdown” when he tried to play his Nintendo and couldn’t because it wasn’t fully charged. Thankfully, Noah knew just what to say to help his brother relax.
Commenters were impressed — both by Noah’s maturity and delicate demeanor and Ashley’s incredible parenting. Even Chris Evans — aka Captain America — retweeted the video!
“I am a speech language therapist and work with kids. I am amazed how your son is giving your younger son eye contact and body gestures and modeling for him,” one person said. “Whatever you are doing, you are a super mom!”
“You’re a fantastic parent,” another added. “Even when you make a mistake, because everyone does, this grounding work [will] see y’all through.”
