Big Block Sing Song

I started my day today with Disney Jr. playing in the background on the TV. I would personally like to thank the Big Block Sing Song for placing the song “Mad” in my head to repeat over and over all day long. However, after repeating this mantra as I rushed to get Kaylee on the school bus….we missed it anyways…I realized that if the younger audience would heed the wisdom of this song early, they may not need as much help as adults.

Mad – lyrics- by Big Block Sing Song – Disney Jr.
Have you ever been so angry you could Stomp Your Feet?
Have you ever been so mad you get tears?
Have you ever been so angry that your head gets hot,
Feels like steam shooting out of your ears?

Everybody out there feels that way now and then,
Everybody out there gets mad.
Here’s a little trick I think might help you feel better.
You might not end up feeling so bad.

Breathe Out – Breathe In – Take Some Time – Count to Ten.
Now you’re ready to begin ……To Cool it down.

Think About It – Now you’re cooled down it might be easy to think.
Think About it – Things might not seem so bad.
Talk about it – Talking about it might help you feel better.
Might make you not feel so mad.

It’s hard not to be angry when you break your favorite things.
It’s tough when you spill stuff too.
For those times when it feels like every thing’s going wrong,
Feels like it’s just raining on you.
Here’s What you can do….

Breathe Out – Breathe In – Take Some Time – Count to Ten.
Now you’re ready to begin ……To Cool it down.
Now you’re ready to begin ……To Cool it down.

Now we adults can sing this song to help us to cope with those younger ones who don’t listen and learn from the song even though they were taught it at an early age. (We, on the other hand, have an excuse….I wasn’t raised with this concept or knowledge!) So, we re-write the song:

It’s hard not to be angry when your kid missed the bus.
It’s tough when you watch it blow by.
For those times when the morning rush is an epic fail,
Feels like you’d rather not even try.
Here’s what you can do….

Breathe Out – Breathe In – Take Some Time – Count to Ten.
Now you’re ready to begin ……To Cool it down.
Now you’re ready to begin ……To Cool it down

OK, adults, you now have the tools….use them. Breath Out, Breathe In…
