SETTING HER UP FOR SHARING
Make your child feel valuable, safe and good. Help her to develop a good self-image.
Accept her unconditionally and positively. Even if you do not condone her behaviour, she must know that you don’t reject her.
Discipline is important, but it should be balanced out with equal amounts of love and warmth.
Show sincere interest in her thoughts, feelings and activities. Children quickly realise when parents aren’t listening properly.
Avoid constant criticism and saying “no” all the time.
Invest time and effort in creating a calm, happy family vibe.
