Children thrive when they feel connected. A loving and supportive relationship is one of the most protective factors as children move throughout their lives.
Application: Take a moment today to be present with your child and connect. Give a hug, share words of encouragement, or get on the floor and play with your child.
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” -Leo Buscaglia
