Are you shy to show affection to your partner in the presence of your child?
Studies have shown that affectionate parents raise happier children and it improves their psychological well-being!
Allow your child to see what a loving relationship is all about...Kiss, hug and cuddle your partner in front of them.
Even babies are sensitive to the emotions of their parents. They pick up love or hate vibrations through the tone of your voice and facial expressions. Create a 𝐒𝐄𝐂𝐔𝐑𝐄 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐋𝐎𝐕𝐈𝐍𝐆 environment, no matter what your child's age is. Pave the way of communicating and interacting in a loving and kind manner and your children will foster these behaviours in themselves too.
A LITTLE BOOST OF YOUR CHILD'S CONFIDENCE AND SELF ESTEEM GOES A LONG WAY
Praise their efforts and reinforce that you are proud of them.
Encourage them to take risks and try out something new.
Value their uniqueness and individualism without comparing them to others.
Support and guide them gently in the things that they struggle with.
Give attention and time to their interests and help them flourish their natural talents.
OUR CHILDREN ARE ALWAYS ARE GREATEST TEACHERS IN LIFE!
There are 𝟯 𝗠𝗔𝗜𝗡 𝗡𝗘𝗘𝗗𝗦 that our children ask of us through their behaviour:
- the need to be 𝙨𝙚𝙚𝙣 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙝𝙚𝙖𝙧𝙙
- the need to feel 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙩𝙝𝙮 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙫𝙖𝙡𝙪𝙚𝙙
- the need to know they 𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙢𝙥𝙤𝙧𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙩.
According to Dr Shafeli, a parenting expert, she says that we need to adjust our parenting approach to consciously fulfil the needs of our child and not the other way around.
I have been working with parents and their children for over 4 years as a Kids Empowerment Coach, and I have seen firsthand how parents can damage their child’s self esteem by trying to restrict them to confirm to their ideals and dreams.
Empower your child with confidence and give them permission to blossom into their own authentic selves.
When we see our children as teachers, every opportunity becomes a chance to learn and grow together.
