4 habits to strengthen your relationship with your child
We love having that connection with our children that just melts your heart. That connection that makes them want to cooperate with us because they want to follow our lead, not because they are afraid of us.
But how can you maintain this relationship when you are at work all day? Simple! You create habits. Let’s see 4 habits that you and your little one should have in order to maintain and improve your connection.
Make play and laughter a daily habit that offers your child the chance to de-stress and laugh out the anxieties and upsets that make him feel disconnected.
Get rid of technology when you interact with your child
This is really important. Turn off(or silent) your devices and enjoy spending time with your little kid. If you are in a car, you can also turn off your music. That is an invitation for him to open up and share.
Make 12 (or more) physical connections every day
As Virginia Satir said: “We need 4 hugs a day for survival. We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for growth.”
Connect with your child during transitions
Children find it hard to transition from one thing to another. Find a way to connect with him in order to make himself go through a transition.
