Parenting advice you can trust
Your child relies on you as a mum or dad to feel secure and in order to develop. The youngest children express the want and need for contact with you in different ways - in step with their own development.
Infants don't have words but can still give you clear messages. How can you see and hear the difference between when your baby is happy, tired, hungry or ready to have contact with you?
What we adults refer to as “defiance” is in reality the child's project to find out who he or she is.
It doesn’t matter how old your child is, it’s important to show her that you love her – as often as you can! By showing your child unconditional love, you build both self-esteem and a sense of security.
Tantrums, outbreaks of jealousy, anger or "defiance". It is not always easy to understand your child’s strong emotions and see them from his perspective.
It is both necessary and important to be able to set boundaries for your child. But the way you set these boundaries strongly affects whether your child understands and accepts what you say.
Your own childhood will affect both your general worldview and the way you raise your child.
