Emotional Intelligence

Today my five-year-old son with autism caught me crying. If Corbin had caught me I knew I would get a hug and a meaningful talk as that kid is so tuned in to my emotions it's scary.

Wasn't expecting much from Brian catching me.

I quickly dried my tears and said, "Hi Brian."

He was looking at me so intently and then appropriately used his new phrase that he's been repeating for a month or so now.

He put one hand on my shoulder and said, "You okay?"
