Acknowledge Your Kid Promptly When They Ask For Your Attention
Attention is a very important word in parenting. Many things that your child does is to seek your attention. Many times he talks in a certain way so that you hear him out. And many of his tantrums that you feel are absolutely unnecessary, are actually his own way of seeking your attention.
So, by and large paying attention is something that is unavoidable in parenting. In fact it is said that children whose parents have been attentive towards their words and needs actually go on to become disciplined beings later in life, and also very good listeners. So, no matter how much ever busy you are ensure that when your child is speaking something to you or he seeks your attention for anything, you give him that space unconditionally. It is quite possible that for you whatever your child intends to say is rather trivial. But, understand the fact that for him it means everything. And his hope are attached when he is seeking your attention to tell something. It can be immensely damaging when you are taking his words lightly.
Subsequently, as a result it may happen that your child will refrain from letting you know even the very important things of his life too. So, give your child attention. Lend him a good ear and allow him to speak his mind. Your attention will build a strong bond between the two of you.
