Connection is a combination of acceptance and presence. It’s what our kids need to thrive. Not sure how? Start by listening w/out trying to fix.
Sometimes it feels complex to build strong relationships, especially when someone we love is handling a challenging time. One of the neat things about connection is that it can be simple. Instead of trying to fix things, make everything better or change the way someone feels, the first support we can give is to listen. Your presence (being there for someone), and your acceptance (not trying to change them), empowers them to work through their emotions and become calm enough to problem solve.
