Spotlight on family
Don’t forget to listen. A child who is struggling with a situation is often looking for someone to
simply ‘hear them out’ and understand. They want one other person to deeply know and care. This is
one of the most amazing forms of love we can give. It reassures a child we are on their side, their pain
matters to us, and we care. A child also wants to hear that we trust them and believe they have the ability
to manage the situation. It often pays to wait before we offer our advice. Until they have been heard, it can
be hard for a child to take that advice on board.More parenting Hot Tips from The Parenting Place. Visit
our blog for more ideas and stories.
