What’s the worry?

Encourage your children to tell you what is worrying them – anything from personal worries or relationships up to something about the world at large. Don’t laugh at these or dismiss them as irrelevant, instead discuss them rationally – and don’t immediately go into “fix-it” mode.

  • It’s OK to admit that you are worried too, if appropriate.
  • Maybe agree to read up on the issue together (if appropriate) so you can find out more and be able to assess the situation better.

Tips:

“I Love You”

Tell your children you love them, often. Live out that love by always being there for your kids, no matter what.
