Telly's Afraid to Play with Baby Bear (#4047)

When Baby Bear and Telly are playing basketball, Telly accidentally hits Baby Bear in the nose. It really hurts, but Gina takes a look at it and says it should be okay. Baby Bear is ready to play some more, but Telly is petrified of hurting his best friend again. He is even too afraid of hurting Baby Bear to play with his triangle collection. Baby Bear starts to get very sad and expresses how frustrated he is that he can't play with his friend Telly. Gina comes by and talks to him about his feelings. She suggests that he tell Telly how he feels. Baby Bear and Telly discuss their feelings together and Telly is able to see that his fear of hurting Baby Bear on the outside was actually causing him to hurt Baby Bear on the inside. They are able to solve their conflict by talking through the problem and they continue playing. [55 minutes] Closed Captioning
