What To Say Instead of “You’re Okay!”

With children, it’s less about what you say, and more about how you say it. Body posture and tone will always communicate more than our words. 

Communicating with compassion and understanding will have a long-lasting impact on your child’s emotional intelligence. Think of it as brain food that serves to enhance the wiring between the emotional and rational part of the brain. 

Parents wants their children to have a rich understanding of their internal world, as well as the ability to gain additional perspectives. This skill comes with age and with repeated experiences of feeling understood by another person. 

If you have toddler, what would you add to this list?
