Take Into Consideration Your Kid's Point Of View
There will be several incidents where it will be difficult to make your child understand your views and also understand his point of view at this point of time. But, this is essential that you and your little one are on the same page at the end of the day. Talk to your child in the most welcoming manner so that he opens up to you without any inhibition. Keeping all the channels of communication open is one of the best ways to understand your child and his thoughts about certain things.
Allow him to speak and tell him what you feel about it. This will initiate a dialogue and you both can talk and make an effort to understand each other in a better way. Remember the fact that what is right for you may not always be the same for your child and vice versa. So striking a middle ground is important.
