Does your child know how much you love them?
Like, how much you'd do anything for them love them?
If you find yourself dishing out ultimatums, caught up in stand offs and power struggles or just plain confused by your child's challenging behavior often, parenting starts to feel like a daily struggle. Your relationship with increasingly becomes strained.
And though you know you love each other, tense moments drive a wedge that results in more ultimatums, more stand offs, more power struggles.
It doesn't have to be that way.
You can have many days where you really feel the love you have for your child, where you delight in their company and where they, in turn, feel the deep sure warmth of your love for them.
As Patty Wipfler, Co-author of the book Listen, and founder of Hand in Hand Parenting says in this video, “Children function at their best when they feel connected.”
When kids feel connected, they get on with people better, they are lighter and more easygoing, they want to please, learn and do well.
That sunny attitude makes the work of parenting easier and more joyful more often.
And when you can connect often, you also get to know your children on a deep level. Why is this so essential? Well, not only do you get to see what delights them and make them happy, you also get to learn what triggers their fears and upsets.
As Patty says, “It's like learning to know your child from the inside out.”
So how can you nurture more of these sweet, loving moments? How can you influence your child's sense of connection in a regular way?
It's easier than you'd think.
