How your child feels on the inside.
IF YOU ONLY REMEMBER ONE THING, MAKE IT THIS:
When your child asks a question,
answer him the first time!
Remember that your child is super sensitive to the emotional environment in your family. As adults we need to be very careful with what we say and do. Our interactions with our children are engraved in their memories FOREVER!
Your child gains or loses self-esteem based on how she believes others think of her. When you include your child in your family life, and show respect for her interests, you show her she is loved and valued.
Tell your child you love her every day—no matter what!
Children Learn What They Live. This poem sums up children’s emotional development.
