Become A Curious Observer of Your Child

ALL BEHAVIOR IS COMMUNICATION. 
 
 
Sometimes our kids do things that make us scratch our heads. 
 
They freak out over small things, like what color cup they got at dinner, for seemingly no reason (no adults ever do that, right?  
 
One of the things we can do as caregivers or parents is to become curious about our children’s behavior.  
 
Almost like a detective  
 
Slow down and take time to consider WHY your child might be acting a certain way or engaging in a certain behavior. 
 
If you can figure out the WHY, it becomes much easier to respond. 
 
And your child might feel better understood by you.  
 
You won’t always be able to figure it out, or you may be way off base and that’s okay. 
 
Remain curious and caring. 
 
P.S. Of course this becomes easier when your kids are older and are better able to communicate what’s going on in their inner world. But maintain your curiosity. It can help your preteen, teen, etc. know that you care.
