Give your children the support they need to express themselves and develop character.
Nurture plays a large role in determining what an individual’s personality and character develops into. The environment your children are in can heavily influence their habits and thought patterns—just like your childhood environment influenced yours.
By giving your children a positive role model, as well as productive activities to channel their energy into, you give them healthy outlets through which they can express themselves and learn social and decision-making skills. Furthermore, by acknowledging their perspectives, you can foster a close bond between the two of you.
