Children won't form on their own like seedlings, Children grow through their relationships with others
The book will help you to step back Focus on more bigger picture of parenting to foster a strong relationship with your child so that they can grow emotionally and mentally healthy
The way we react to parenting situations is tied up to our own childhood.
Remember yourself as a child.
Think about what makes you angryOr frustrated as parent. Then, try to remember if anything similar used to happen to you were young. Try to draw links between your childhood and your own child's present, and address any emotions attached.
Validate your child's feelings, even the irrational ones.
Meet your child At their level.
Instead of flying off the handle to match your child's tantrums, come down to their l level and ask them. Ask them why they are and try to meditate that emotion. Show that you understand where are coming from and try to come to a solution that they can appreciate.
There are things that we can do as parents to encourage sound mental health.
Be engaged around your kid
These moments will pass you by if you are not careful, so relish every moment with your child. Put your phone away and turn your TV off. Listen to what they are saying and ask questions, Instead of replying. Encourage them to play and Join in.
