All kids, from infants to teens, need the emotional support that comes from a close connection with their parents. It doesn’t have to take long – in fact, the most valuable moments are the smallest. These are the daily opportunities parents can use to let kids know they are listening and ready to support them emotionally.
So, if your child tells you something that happened at school, take a moment, really listen to what they are saying and feeling. Give them your full attention. Try to understand how they are feeling. When kids feel emotionally supported, validated and understood about the little things, they will be better able to handle the bigger challenges of life.
