Research finds that the most successful parents are the least reactive ones. All you need is to express to your child at all times your warm, unconditional love and support by conveying this simple thought … DAILY: “I’m here to listen to what you’re going through, I’m not going anywhere, and you’re fine just the way you are.” Lather, rinse, repeat.
