tips & tricks for growth
you can be more supportive
Research has shown that being a supportive parent has far-reaching benefits for your child. Being a supportive parent helps your child be better equipped to handle stressful situations, be able to handle their own emotions, be capable of regulating their behavior, and get along with others.
Here are a few steps to take on your journey to being a more supportive parent:
1. Be as empathetic as possible.
2. Enjoy being a student of your child.
3. Be open and askable.
4. Make time to connect.
connect as a family without devices
Do you remember when the only TV at home was in the family room? Or when your family looked for license plates from all 50 states when you were traveling? Now, just about everybody has their own personal device. Each person listens to different music in the car. Homes have several screens and family members rarely watch the same shows together. Technology is everywhere. Technology affects families, without a doubt.
In the last 50 years, technology has exploded. It’s no longer in one place with limits and parental supervision. It’s portable and unlimited. And it’s very hard to control.
So, we’ve got a lot to think about when it comes to how technology affects families.
