Helping Children Deal With Their Feelings
One of the simplest and most important gifts you can give your child is one of emotional understanding. It is easy for us humans to “get our feelings hurt”. As parents we hurt our children’s feelings all too often. As most parents know, simply saying, “No” to their child’s desires, hurts their feelings. What is important is how you handle the situation after your child’s feelings are hurt. Learn how to help your child feel understood and loved even when you have to disappoint them. Learn how to help your child move past negative feelings without them remaining unresolved, and becoming a potential emotional problem in the future. Help your child grow up as emotionally unscarred as possible.
