Yesterday, we took my son to the lunch in the park again, then later he hung out with me while his mom went to her mother’s house. We had fun, played cards, watched cartoons, played with a balloon, smacking it around. He was well behaved the whole time which was great.
If you are a parent of a young kid, any way that you are able to show them they are valued & Loved, they will thrive on, I can promise you that.
Whatever ELSE you are doing throughout your day, taking time & giving them acknowledgement, positive attention, validation is very healthy (for them & the relationship.)
