Word on the street: Jealous
A strong feeling you have when you want something that someone else has.
Telly and Baby Bear are playing with their pets. Baby Bear's pet parrot can talk, speak Spanish, make his own snacks, and even squeak like Telly's hamster! When Telly tries to get his pet hamster to do tricks, she doesn't do any of them. Telly is upset, calls Baby Bear names, and storms off.
Gordon notices that Telly is upset and asks him what's wrong. Telly says he's feeling angry because Baby Bear's parrot can do all kinds of cool things that his hamster can't. Gordon explains that Telly is feeling jealous, and that it's normal to feel that way.
Telly wants to apoloize to Baby Bear, but every time he sees Baby Bear and his parrot, he feels too jealous to speak. Gordon suggests that Telly try putting his hands on belly and saying, "Stop!" when he sees Baby Bear. Then, he should take a few slow, deep breaths to calm down.
Will Gordon's strategy help save Telly and Baby Bear's friendship? Tune in to find out!
