Whenever you see that your little ones doubt themselves or want to do something, but they can’t seem to get the courage to do it —either because they don’t know how to do it or because they are afraid— remind them that you are there for them.
That is why it is vitally important for children to feel that they can count on their parents whenever they have a problem.
This kind of phrase, besides reinforcing the bond and trust between parents and children, will also give children a lot of security and self-confidence. These phrases will help them to avoid fear, knowing that if “something bad” happens, mom and dad will be there to protect them or help them.
“You can count on me” or “I’m here to help you”
