Family Bonding

It is a common notion that kind and loving conduct will often result in a better bonding between you and your child as compared to a regimented, stern and strict behavior. Positive reinforcement is always advocated, wherever possible to foster a heartfelt and warm relationship between you and your child. Here are some tips on how to use a loving and friendly approach to dealing with everyday scenarios with your child.

1. When your child becomes uncooperative or is throwing a temper tantrum, try to calm her down by talking to her a sweet and welcoming tone with a smile on her face, while holding her or carrying her up and looking at her with a warm and friendly expression. Your child will be more receptive to you if you will be friendly and playful with her even when she is being uncooperative, thus allowing you to address her needs while not hurting her feelings or the way that she feels towards you.

2. When your child breaks or drops anything by accident, try to not be alarmed by the loss of the object. Though easier said than done, keep in mind that your child does not know what it broke or didn't intend to harm your belongings. Mistakes happen, and it should be treated as one. Explain to your child how dangerous not handling things with care can harm her, showing her how and where to keep objects in and around the house.

3. Sometimes children can be fascinated by the most trivial of things. Show your kid on how to relish the joy of the simple things that are around her, remembering to share her enthusiasm in exploring or trying something that she finds fascinating as well. As adults, it is hard to sometime understand what is the aspect of something that is fascinating her, but giving her attention and being audience to her speech goes a long way letting her know that she is being heard, which makes her infinitely more happy than any toy would.

4. Keep in mind that your child is completely unbiased and loves you. Remembering this simple fact helps us adults be able to relate to and have boundless love and compassion for our little ones.
