  • He remains at his side, listening without legislator and trying to satisfy not only their physical and economic -bed needs, shelter, food …- but above all, emotional. Ask every day how he has been in school, encourage him or her how to act if you have had a problem with a friend …
  • Problems your child may seem insignificant to you. Better compared to the problems that you face you every day, that he has broken a toy is no reason to make a drama, but it’s “toy” and your little one can feel deeply sad about it. If your feeling is with contempt for adults will cost express their feelings and withdrawn child will become.
