When a little boy laid on the ground in a moment of frustration, a police officer didn’t hesitate to lay down beside him to talk it out.
Sgt. Precious Cornner-Jones posted a photo of the touching moment to Facebook
She explained that she was attending a high-five rally at Indiana Public School 88 when she spotted the boy.
“This little fella was having a tough morning and fell out on the floor. I seen his mother step back and look. She stated this is how he is expressing himself lately,” wrote Cornner-Jones wrote. “I decided to get on his level and talk to him. He started to cry so I wiped his tears and told him it will be ok (sic).”
She said it’s OK for kids to have a bad day once in a while.
“These children are entitled to bad days just as us, so give them that moment to bring it together. Get on someone’s level today and make them smile!” wrote Cornner.
