Here’s an Emotional Fitness Poster Coach to help you stop expecting too much of love.
Here’s another tip: Remember the five in one rule. Make sure good moments out weigh the bad at least five to one.
The older a child, the more unloved s/he might feel. Why? Many children tend to think when bad things happen they are to blame. Moreover, they would rather feel they are bad than unloved. Two ways parents can help a child find a better balance:
Parenting tip one: Make it clear no one is perfect and the best goal is to try your best to be good enough.
Parenting tip two: Model acceptance of your personal imperfections my apologizing when you are wrong. Remember what constitutes a good apology.
