13 Having loving parents is crucial for children - although your teenager might run a mile before ever admitting it! A good relationship with their parents helps children to feel safe and secure. It also means they’re more likely to be happier, healthier and to get on better with others. Building a good relationship with your child takes time and effort - it doesn’t happen overnight. Babies and young children You can build strong, loving relationships with your child right from the start. Talk and sing to them Smile at them Give them lots of kisses and cuddles Make up games and have time to play together Learn to recognise what your baby is asking for - get to know their cries and facial expressions. Listen to what your child says Children and young people feel valued when adults listen to what they say. Of course, listening to kids is not always easy. Children think differently to adults and sometimes they don’t have the words to express themselves clearly. Listening is more than just hearing - it’s about understanding the feelings behind your child’s words. Don’t interrupt or finish off their sentences for them Don’t jump in with a lecture or criticism - allow them to finish what they are saying Check with them that you understand what they’re saying Show you’re interested and encourage them to keep talking - “How come?”, “So you must have felt …”, “Really! How fantastic!” Ask questions without turning it into an interrogation Make time to listen if your child has something important to tell you - put down the paper or turn off the TV!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
