Understand Your Kid's Feelings - Assure Them Of Your Support
Your little wonder is growing up with all sort of thoughts and ideas in his mind. It is thus very difficult to gauge what is going on and what he is thinking at various levels. Every child develops their own defence mechanism, and as a parent it’s up to you to figure out how to deal with it.
While some kids are vocal, there are some who keep things to themselves. And in such a case you too don’t need to shout to let your child know that you care about his feelings. Try to reciprocate the way he feels comfortable with. Little comforting gestures, a pat at the back, a casual hug, or just a thumbs up can speak volumes on behalf of your words. And these gestures are what your child needs in the name of emotional security.
