In life and time, we form many bonds. Many of these are temporary. Some are meant to last forever and do, others don’t. One bond that we can count on creating a lasting impression with is the one we form with our children and vice versa. Despite the various changes that occur in your respective lifestyles, a bond fostered between a child and parent is built to last, if we lay the groundwork.
The relationships we have with our parents go on to shape many aspects of our being. Emotional and mental health are closely related to the habits we are taught growing up and are pretty valuable determinants in how we move forth in every relationship throughout our lives.
The way we relate to our children is our choice. We have an opportunity to consult with our own inner child and apply what we know.
Which of these ways to build a strong relationship with your children can you identify with?
