Helping Your Child Build Inner Strength - How Can You Help Children Build Inner Strength?
Empathy is an important part of building inner strength. It means that a child can recognize and appreciate how others are feeling. It means that a child cares when others feel bad and that the child wants to help them.
You can help your child learn empathy by demonstrating it in your own life and talking with your child about it.
Volunteering. Do volunteer work. If you can, take your child with you.
Sharing. Teach your child the importance of sharing.
Helping. Let your child help you with household chores, and show how happy it makes you to have help.
Helping others can help children learn that they have the power to make others feel better.
Self-control and good behavior
Set limits. Setting limits for your children shows them that you love and care about them.
Make sure that your rules are reasonable and that your children understand them. And follow through on any consequences you have established for
failing to follow rules.
Use good discipline techniques. Discipline is the teaching of good and appropriate behavior. Effective parenting techniques encourage your child's sense of responsibility, nurture self-esteem, and strengthen your parent-child relationship.
