Bonding ….Rule # 2

Hello again!! How was the week? Did any of you practice speaking good words? I did say it takes patience and discipline to do so.

Home is  where every person is busy front of the laptop/ television, on the phone or the iPad and all of this under the same roof. Am I right? Of course, not! It is sad if our home is not a place of warmth and care, a place where we can communicate and be our self.

Well, try this. Every day when your toddler returns from school don’t just feed him/her and then get them to watch television, but sit with them and ask them about their day. Simple questions like, what did your teacher say? Did you do something new in class? How is your friend?

In a nutshell: GET INVOLVED in your toddler’s life.

You’ll be amazed how the bond of trust and love will grow stronger each passing day.

Some toddlers take time to open up or may speak in a word or two. It’s fine. Relax, he is getting one picture for sure and that is – you are interested in his life. And when he speaks do not interrupt. Learn to develop listening skills( this one is for you dear parents : )

Listening is a skill. We will speak about it in depth next week. Till then start getting involved in your little one’s world and speak words that will build up the child’s morale.

Best Regards,

Norma Gallyot.

  1. The bond between a parent and child is the primary bond, the foundation for the rest of the child’s life. The presence or absence of this bond determines much about the child’s resiliency and what kind of adult they will grow up to be.

    I just wasted to share this. Hope you liked it ma’am.

  2. Thanks to God that bond between me and my daughter is unique. In the evening when we meet we talk about how we send the day. We share all good and bad experiences. We hardly watch TV. According to me Tv, cell phones are main cause of disturb families. Whatever you have said is word to word correct.
