Make kids feel worthwhile

Children need to feel that they are worthwhile. This requires conscious effort on the part of parents to ensure that children are not ignored, constantly put down or laughed at, even if this is done unconsciously or inadvertently.

  • Spend time with your kids
  • Ask your children about their lives, and listen to their responses
  • Praise your children sincerely and often

Activities:

Anytime can be time with your child

You don't need to plan big 'special' events to spend time with your child

Tips:

Be an example for your child

Seeing how you handle different situations in your life, good and bad, influences your children.
