At one point in life we all suffer from this problem where our kids don’t want to hang out with us or are embarresed of us. How do we deal with it? How do get them to connect with us or open to us? After all we are their parents and we can protect them.
If you are suffering with these issues in your life then read on as we tell you about different ways that you can have your kid open upto and learn to connect with you.
Let them know you love them
Letting your kids know that you love them can be a bit tricky and sometimes come off as smothering. The key is to not repeatedly keep yelling that you love them but to show them. You can show them that you love them by showing special attention to what they do, what they like, what are their hobbies and what are there goals.
This lets the kids know that you are trying to reach out to them rather then a fake blue ‘love you’ here and there. Just complimenting them on something they didn’t know that you noticed can be great too. Small things like these can make a huge difference in your kids life.
Play Sports with them
Usually they won’t like it but every now and then play sports with them to let them know that they are deserving of your time and during this time talk with them.
I know it might seem weird if your kid is a skateboarder but don’t worry or if you are worried that they will injure themselves then you have nothing to worry about.
Even if they like skateboarding and you can’t join them, learn about it.. things like what are the best skateboard trucks and decks. Then sit with him and share talks about his favorite sports with him.
I am sure he is going to love it.
Right now lets work on these two and I will post more next week .
