My daughter's "first day of school jitters" got me thinking about the messages we send to kids when we don't truly listen to their fears.
How do you typically respond to your child's anxiety or fears?
Do you try to make it better, lift him up and tell him "it's gonna be fine" or do you offer an empathetic ear, just there to receive the story/feelings/experiences your child wants to share without needing to praise, fix, advise or counsel?
It's NOT easy. Here are a few tips!
