Talk to them openly

Children are honest and easily express themselves if talked freely. Initiate a conversation with them and ask them about their day and life. Ask them if there is anything bothering them and then, try to improve things that they highlight.

Limit their exposure to news and mobile games

Mobile games and negative news take a dig at your child’s mind and unknowingly make them mentally weak. Their subconscious mind consume negativity and make them think all those things only. Therefore, you must ensure to look for positive things and talk positively only when you are in front of your kids.

Play with them

Your kid needs you the most. You should take out some time from your professional life and spend quality time with your kid. It’ll help them to feel secure and build a connection with you. Play their favourite games with them and listen to what they say.

Don’ts

Fighting with your partner

Kids catch arguments between parents really easily. They become scared of their parents and create a distance from them due to their loud noise and difference of opinion. You must not fight with your partner in front of your kids if you want their well-being.

Shout at them

Children can ask multiple questions and being a parent stressed about many things might make you irritated with their bombardment of questions. However, shouting at them is not the solution. Never behave aggressively with your kid as it can create a long-lasting effect on them.

Leave them alone

As an adult, you might have your priorities set but this doesn’t mean you should ignore your kid. Leaving your kid with their grandparents or caretakers once in a while is okay but leaving them alone frequently can make them go away from you.
