Trudeau Sits Down For Heart-To-Heart With Boy Who Had A Tough Day

Sometimes, all you need is someone to listen.

"Some teacher reflexes never cease."

So said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's photographer, who captured this sweet moment between Canada's leader and a young student sitting on the steps of Parliament.

The boy was "having a bad day while on a school visit," and Trudeau — a father of three who once worked as a French, drama, and math teacher — hunkered down for a quick heart-to-heart.

Photographer Adam Scotti snapped a discreet photo of the moment and posted it to Instagram Friday.
