Recognize and accept the truth about how your child is thinking and feeling in THIS moment. How we let our children know that we understand and see them for who they are has a huge influence on how they relate to the world.
Be accessible to your child when with them. Too often as adults we are wrapped up in our own thoughts, feelings, and all we have to do. Working with family members on skills to promote being present with each other in the time they have together is integral to the work.
Here we are talking about the quality of the relationship between you and your child. There is an entire field of research on attachment and this is different than “attachment parenting.” Attachment here is closer to the idea of being sensitive to the subtle cues your child gives, sharing with you what they need at any particular moment. Children of all ages need help at times to meet a challenge, regulate their emotions, or connect more strongly with you.
