A family’s security camera captured the sweet moment a four-year-old boy headed to his crying sister’s crib and reassured her everything was okay and that it was going to be a good day.
The video was shared by mom Kristy Kusler, from San Diego, California, who watched on as her son Hunter headed over to two-year-old Madison’s crib.
There, Hunter leaned over and said, “Hey, Mad, we’re not going to cry today,” adding, “It’s going to be a good day.”
He then reaffirmed the message: “Don’t cry today. This is going to be a good day, Maddie.”
Kristy has been working on a new business and was on a work call when Hunter informed her that Madison had started crying.
The four-year-old assured his mom, “I’ll go get her, Mama. I’m going to tell her it’ll be okay.”
When Kristy then overheard her son upstairs, talking to his sister, she thought it was the sweetest thing and decided to rewatch the video.
The moment took place on December 21, and Kristy later shared the clip online where is quickly went viral – which Kristy believed to be be down to the wisdom people see in childhood innocence.
She said: “Seeing their interaction and how loving Hunter was to her made my heart melt.
“I love how he told her ‘We’re not going to cry,’ like this was going to be a team effort and they were in it together.
“They can still fight like siblings do, or struggle to share sometimes, but Madison absolutely adores her big brother, and Hunter is so protective of her.
“They can play together for hours and make each other laugh hard – it’s special to see how he comforts her and makes me feel like I’ve taught him well in how I comfort him.”
