Sometimes when we are in the thick of it with our kids, it’s easy to forget that most of their emotional responses are cries for connection with us. When we feel tired, disconnected, or stressed by our own circumstances, we can miss out on those chances to connect with our kids. Will Hutcherson shares 5 simples tenants with us in his book “Seen” to help us remember the super power that we have as our kids’ parents.
When we show up, they feel loved.
When we see them, they feel understood.
When we just listen, they feel safe.
When we speak life, they feel worthy.
When we develop grit, they feel empowered.
