Love & warmth

You can never spoil a child with too much love. Showing warmth and affection builds trust, positive self-esteem. and strengthens your relationship.

Limits & boundaries

Rules keep things safe and fair for the whole family. They need to teach mostly ‘what we do' rather than ‘what we don't do'. They need to work for everyone - for children and parents.

Talking & listening

Talking with kids and really listening to what they say makes them feel heard and builds their confidence.

Consistency & consequences

Consistency involves predictability. From an early age, children learn that an action has consequences.

Guidance & understanding

Children are more likely to co-operate when they understand why we want them to do something. Clear, simple, explanations are the most effective.

A structured & secure world

Safe, supportive environments provide security and reduce conflict.
