Email of the Day: Buck Up, Quit Bawling, and Deal With It

Email of the Day: Buck Up, Quit Bawling, and Deal With It

Since my granddaughter was around 3, she heard your program every time I had her in my car. She would comment occasionally on your advice, so I knew she was listening.


As a teenager, someone ran into the back of her beloved car at a stop sign and then sped off. She drove to her sisterโ€™s house, crying copiously, and called her mother. I asked her later, โ€œWhat would Dr. Laura tell you to do?โ€

Her reply was โ€œShe would say โ€˜buck up, quit bawling, and deal with it!โ€™โ€


What a life lesson for a girl of any age! When I had a breast cancer scare, I used the same coping mechanism. I bucked up, quit bawling and dealt with it. Thankfully, the biopsy was negative and my life went back to normal.


Thank you for empowering girls of all ages (15 AND 65) to live strong, rich lives.
