A Helping Hand?

We really want to make sure the boys grow up with an understanding that when someone needs help, they can make a difference by assisting or even comforting that person.

We've been working on the phrase, "Help, please" for a few weeks now.

We've also been working with the boys on making sure they comfort their brothers when they are crying. Usually, we tell them to give whoever a hug ... they usually give a hug or pat each other on the back or head.

I guess we've still got work to do in explaining that helping does not mean making the situation worse:

Yes, that is Hayden pulling Tanner's hair while Tanner is stuck in the kitchen stools. My favorite part of this picture is Hayden's whole "What? I am helping!" look on his face.
