Raising little humans is the hardest and most crucial job ever, especially that most of the human psychological traits and behaviors get shaped during childhood.
However, parents could use some professional help to make the job easier and do things the right way to raise healthy, happy kids who’ll turn out to be decent adult human beings without the unnecessary emotional scars that many of us are still dragging around since our early years in life.
Let’s discover six pieces of advice to care for and raise your child properly, according to Harvard psychologists who studied child psychology.
6. Give your child the best gift ever: Your time!
Spending time with your kid is the basis for everything. You should never tell him/her that you’re too busy to hang out or play, even if you’re truly on a tight schedule; just try to regularly spend time with your baby.
Try to figure out and support their interests and hobbies, as well as listen to and help solve their problems no matter how silly or insignificant they may seem. You must always listen to what your child has to say and make them feel that they are heard and seen.
This way, you’ll create a strong child-parent bond, learn about your kid’s interesting personality, and help him/her healthily show care and attention for others by mirroring your actions.
