For those of you with mobile little ones, how do you react when your little one falls down or gets hurt?

Do you...
a) Immediately rush over, panicked, and ask them if they are okay and soothe them.
b) Wait to see their reaction, and only react if they are hurt? If so, do you try stay calm/neutral or do you fall apart with them?
c) Tell them, "You're fine!" or make a joke, like "Hey, I hope you didn't hurt the floor!"
d) something else

I will wait and see, if they're hurt I will sooth them. In the rare cases that they need to I will clean and patch them up, but I usually have to wait until they've calmed down

Wait and see. If it's serious enough, I have to bust out Dr. Mommy and they help me decide how many cc's of kisses to administer, which usually gets them to laugh and forget about getting hurt.

That is so sweet <3

We also wait and see. I try to remain calm and neutral so I don't freak them out further. We can get pretty silly about dealing with boo-boos, too. I always tell them I'll put a blanket on it and they'll feel better (this worked so well they started putting blankets on their boo boos themselves when they got hurt lol)

We wait. He is a climber and always falling and usually isnt hurt, so if I ran over everytime, it would be crazy lol. The first time, thats another story but now we wait and sometimes I just say ohhh come here and he comes hugs me and then runs away lol

I wait and see. My first rarely cries over anything but younger one will complain about anything. She'll brush her hand against something and complain about her boo boo and once I pat that the other hand will have developed a sympathy boo boo and needs attention too. She's pretty self sufficient with it, if she gets hurt, even though it is more than just a hand brushed against something she'll come over to me if I invite her to. Convenient for me not to have to jump for every small thing.

If she falls or does something that might hurt, I usually say something kind of lighthearted. If she falls it's usually "Whoa! You went kablammy!" She loves saying kablammy so I can tell if she's hurt or not by her reaction. If she's upset, I usually just say, "Oh, I'm sorry that you got hurt. Let me give you a hug." And lately she is into "boo boos" so she may say, "Kiss boo boo." And then after she says, "All better." Thankfully she has really not had any injuries that needed more than a quick hug and kiss.

Unless I can immediately tell that she's seriously hurt, I usually make a joke, laugh, or something to keep it light. She follows my lead well and will laugh or just ask for a kiss and then she forgets about it.

M is a very tough cookie I try to not react at all just on principle, but if she makes a comment like "boom head!" I say "yup, you bonked your head, watch out for that table!" Or whatever. She rarely cries over injuries unless they are pretty painful and frightened her, like she fell unexpectedly. I do overreact on purpose sometimes when she hurts herself doing something too dangerous (like falling backwards on the couch and having poor aim so she falls off and bonks her head on the floor).

First of all, Drake is crazy! He ran off a curb the other day and face planted into the cement and scrapped his head, THAT time I was like OMG!!! But, for the most part, I am calm, sometimes I say "ahh.." and Dave is always like "Babe, you need to not say that!" But anyways, I am very calm when he falls. I wait a second to see if he is ok, I do not rush to him unless I KNOW he needs me. If he does cry I go to him and say "Aww baby, you're ok, look see!" And he will be fine. His crying will last only like a minute IF THAT.

Gentle parenting is about guiding instead of controlling,
connecting instead of punishing,
and encouraging instead of demanding.
It's about listening, understanding, responding and communicating.
