Parenting Tip of the Day: Feeling loved and safe helps children build confidence and a sense of worth.
- Physical affection is important. Hug them often! Be sure to respect their boundaries though.
- Children need to hear “I love you.” They can never hear those words enough!
- Reassure your child that you will ALWAYS love him or her – even when you don’t like certain behaviors.
