- There are no bad emotions
Don’t forbid your child to have feelings. “Don’t be angry!”, “Don’t be afraid!” are messages that parents should not use when raising a child.
- Help understand emotions
When a certain action occurs, followed by an emotion, it is better to pause and discuss with the child what is happening now and what he feels.
- Learn to respond correctly
Discuss how to deal with the situation. Try to talk in such a way that the child can choose a form of reaction which he will use to express his feelings.
- Take the time to communicate
Time spent together is priceless. You will learn a lot about your child. Thanks to such conversations, the child will learn to understand his emotions and what is happening to him even when you are not around.
- Hug your kid
Tactile contact is important. It can be used to calm and support your child.
- Start with yourself
Talk about your emotions and what caused them.
