self-confidence is built through knowing we are loved
self-confidence enables us:
•  to be different when we need to be
•  to build close relationships
•  our children have “emotional tanks" which need to be kept full
•  their behavior acts as the gauge showing the level in the tank

Question:
What are the signs of an empty “emotional tank” in your child(ren)?

  • our children crave to be noticed by us and crave our attention
  • special time with each child develops their self-esteem and their ability to relate to others
  • can be difficult for us as parents to recognize this need and to fulfill it
  • the more children we have, the more planning and conscious effort it takes
  • channels of communication are opened through spending one-on-one time with our child(ren)
  • can transform a child’s behavior
  • eye contact:
    • can be used either positively or negatively
    • children learn by modeling – if we do it, they’ll do it
    • easy when they are babies – but don’t give up eye contact as they get older
    • good eye contact goes hand in hand with active listening

Do you have fond memories of 1:1 time with a parent?  What memories can you create with your children one on one?
