☆ comfort 慰める
If you comfort someone, you make them feel less worried, unhappy or upset, by saying or doing something kind to them. For example, last night, when my son was so upset about not having time for a story before bedtime, I tried to comfort him by putting my arms around him and giving him a hug.
Unfortunately, he felt it was my fault (not his own) that there was no time for a book, so he didn’t want me to comfort him! Oh well!
Luckily this morning, he came straight to me and said he was sorry, so we hugged and comforted each other, and agreed to try and do a better evening routine tonight! Wish us luck!!
