Mum , She Needs You To Pay Attention To Her Emotional Needs
Being mum to both male and female kids , I can tell you there is a clear cut distinction between their needs, physically, emotionally and otherwise.
In the spirit of the recent celebration of the day of the girl child, permit me mums to draw your attention to your daughters and their emotional needs.for the purpose of this article I Have brought it down to 3 needs that in my opinion summarize every need
Topmost on this list is LOVE! As parents, we must give love unconditionally and without expectation, as this is the most basic fundamental emotional requirement for any child, more so your girl child
Parents ,when you love your child unconditionally, you are less likely to be upset if (God Forbid)the child does not come up to expectations. Armed with such an attitude, you will be better positioned to ‘listen’ to even the unspoken language of the child .Daughters seem to want a two fold therapy, regardless of how close they are to their moms….. They want you to love them unconditionally, listen to anything they want to discuss – much like a best friend – but still be Irreplaceably their mother above all else!
Following this , she needs your support, Your girl may not have inspirational dreams just yet, but as she approaches teenage age she will and definitely too, will need your support in one way or another! Again and again, girls tell me that having that loving, non-judgmental presence of their mothers is a top priority…I call it a mother-daughter team spirit, mum, your approval of her does magic, be supportive!
Lastly and very importantly she needs your quality time,Those small moments with you – in the car, getting a manicure, just going shopping, whatever!Your full attention matters to them – so much more than you might think!
Deliberately make out time to spend with your daughter or daughters ,think of fun ways to do it too, see a movie, go to the saloon,visit a friend,it will do a lot of good to you and get you to bond faster
So there you have it,take what works for you! and work on strategies to learn about and understand your daughters,communication is key talk freely about anything and everything.Hopefully you’ll find some insight you hadn’t considered before, or maybe you’ll discover that you and your daughter(s) are already on the right track!Thats a real great place to be
Either way, I will have you know that daughters are a rare specie ,Infact one of Gods limited editions, handle them like the princesses they are…Goodluck
