Parents are the barometers of emotions for children

There's something completely unnerving about seeing your parents upset. I suppose it's because they're supposed to be the strong ones, but that's not just it.
 
Ever since people are kids they use their parents as some sort of measurement for how bad a situation is.
 
When you fall on the ground really hard and you can't figure out whether it hurts or not you look to your parents.
If they look worried and rush toward you, you cry.
If they laugh and smack the ground saying "Bold ground," then you pick yourself up and get on with it. 
 
Parents are the barometers of emotions for children and it has a domino effect on them.
