Parenting Technique 19 – Be Positive, Warm, and Supportive!
When you find your child in a problematic situation that is causing difficulty, focus on the problem. Be the best friend you can to your child and do all you can to help. As you play this role, you build your relationship.
Moreover, when you take this approach, you model effective relationship behavior. This is behavior he or she is likely to emulate with others. Being the recipient of positive warmth and support is basic to the development of empathy and morality.
