Message from Monica Weaver, Social Worker (Parents)
Forming a connection with your child is important to strengthen your bond with one another. This can be done through:
- telling your child that you love them (frequently, even if they are misbehaving)
- eat dinner together (mean times are a great way to relax, unplug and share in each other's day)
- play together/work together (unplug and play a board game together, wash the dishes together, fold towels together)
- please make time to talk to your child every day (turn off the TV, unplug any devices and ask them about the best thing that happened to them today)
- listen to your child and empathize with their feelings (put yourself in their shoes and look at things from their point of view)
- if you have more than one child, try to give each child some one-on-one time each week (if it will strengthen your bond, build their self-esteem and tell them you value them)
- work on homework together, read a book together, look over your child's completed schoolwork from the day and praise them for their efforts (let them know you value their education and their work ethic)
These positive parenting tips can help build your relationship with your child and will benefit both you and your child in many ways.
