Basic Tips To Strengthening Parent-Child Relationship
A parent-child relationship is a key to preparing a growing child for the future. Hence, a bad Parent-child bonding is unhealthy and would most likely ruin his lucky break in the future since this kind of bond helps the child in forming a strong and trustworthy relationship with the outside world.
This bonding cannot be strengthened in a day. It takes time and very good communication skill. Strengthening the parent-child relationship is one thing, maintaining the strengthened relationship is another. Here, you will learn to do both with very easy tips:
Spend Ample Time with your child
This is no different than having a date with your wife or girlfriend. No matter how tight your schedule may seem, squeeze out time to go on “dates” with your child and learn a lot of things you didn’t know about him/her. You get to understand each other very well and in a better way. This makes the child feel special in a mighty indescribable way (like when you feel butterflies in your stomach). When you do this, you are telling the child that you can give up anything just be near him/her.
Nothing wrong with a little surprise from time to time!
Occasionally, surprise your child with a little something at random occasions. It doesn’t have to be expensive. It could be a customized leather jacket or some fancy wallet (something that would mean a lot to him). Toys can do the trick for little children, unique ones though. You can also buy him things as an incentive to good work done like when he’s got very wonderful grades in school. This shows how much your child is worth to you. If you’re scared of spending on your child maybe as a result of little income, think of it as an investment. With proper upbringing, trust me, it will be so worth it.

TALK ING . . . A tool that always comes in handy
If possible, look for excuses to always be in constant communication with your child. Maybe you could volunteer to help him out with assignments or read to him during bedtime (Recommended: This always helps). You can always make a secret name for your child while chatting with him. This is sure to increase the intimacy between you and your child.
How much do you love him/her?
Never forget to constantly remind your child about how so much you love him/her. Even though a situation arises, it pays to say “I love you, Sammy”. This shows that no matter what happens, you will always be there to show your support and express your love.
Also, note that because you are the mother of your child doesn’t mean you know her. Get in touch with her from time to time (if you are a very busy person) and let her keep you updated with what’s going on around her but that doesn’t mean you should suffocate him/her in the name of love. Of course, some space is necessary. Very necessary.
Keep in mind that this is not a day’s job. The bonding strengthens gradually needs to be nurtured with love and care every day.
