One of the hardest part of being a parent is teaching kids to calm themselves when things go wrong.

Shelbee Haderer of McCloud, Oklahoma has a great method for helping her 2-year-old Brilee soothe herself, and now a video of their positive affirmations is going viral.

The video begins shortly after Brilee accidentally smashed her little fingers in a door. She’s understandably upset by the painful experience, but Shelbee wisely has her daughter taking deep breaths through the tears.

Once the little girl is calmer, Shelbee has her repeat a few adorable reminders that all kids should learn early and well: “I’m okay. I’m strong. I’m beautiful. I’m loved. I’m worthy.”

The result is practically magical!

After Brilee repeats these expressions of self-love and acceptance aloud, she is noticeably calmer and more composed. Her sweet, “Thank you, mom” will surely melt your heart into a puddle!

Watch the video above to hear Brilee’s affirmations.
