How to help children and young people build respectful relationships?

1. Let Your Child Know You're Interested in His Activities- spend time each day doing an activity that they would like to do, even if it is the same puzzle for the 25th time that day. Show your interest, do not show you are bored of tired of it. 
2. Allow for Unstructured, Uninterrupted Time With Your Child Each Day-spend one on one with each child, they could be hurting and your time is what they need 

3. Encourage Children to Express Their Feelings in Age-Appropriate Ways- no matter the age we have feelings and those feelings are usually better to be spoken out, if a child is angry and they keep it to them self, it can cause serious health issues. 

4. Respect Your Child's Feelings- Respect, Respect, Respect!!! 

5. Let your kids know you care and remain approachable- I want my daughter to know she can talk to me about anything at any time. it is crucial to have a relationship with your kids, let them feel you are their friend, they will need you in their lives. 
6. Honesty- Honesty is encouraged in relationships where there is trust and acceptance. You can encourage honesty in your children by being honest with yourself and true to your own feelings. Young people learn there is no need to lie when they are able to openly express themselves to others and feel accepted even when their choices may have been questionable. Young people will be more open to exploring constructive options with an adult when the reasoning behind their earlier choices has been listened to respectfully.

Parenting brings joys and challenges. Stay strong and love your kids.
