What I struggle with the most?


What is an area that you struggle most in with your child? For me is was validating the feelings. Validation does not mean agreeing with. It simply means acknowledging that they exist for the child. We can say, "There's no reason to feel that way," but that doesn't make the feelings go away or even make the child that you really understand. Sometimes, we just need to be heard. You can always validate. Also by validating, you are naming the feeling. For example, a child throws a toy. You can say, "I can tell you are angry because you threw the toy." Now the child is able to begin to understand the feeling that they are feeling inside and label it anger. By validating, you can increase the child's emotional literacy

I look forward to hearing what you struggle with. Let me know.
