Have you noticed this in your child?
These behaviors can be highly annoying and the natural reaction is to make it stop 🛑. But being aware of the root cause of our kids asking for connection will allow us to take action that will mend and heal instead of creating more disconnection and isolation.
These small actions can go a long way:
🧡 Hug instead of pushing away
🧡 Get them involved in what you are doing
🧡 Ask for their opinion
🧡 Notice and praise something they did or said
