Showing your child love

Use plenty of positive words with your child. Try to avoid using sarcasm with your child. They often don’t understand it, and if they do, it creates a negative interaction.

Respond promptly and lovingly to your child's physical and emotional needs and banish put-downs from your parenting vocabulary.

Make an extra effort to set a good example at home and in public. Use words like "I'm sorry," "please," and "thank you."
