As a parent, we would like our children to share all their feelings with us. Their dreams, secrets, fears, joy etc. But as the child grows, she stops sharing things with parents. Usually, parents feel that child is influenced by her friends and that’s why she is not sharing thins with parents. The real question to be asked is:
Does the child know what feelings to share and how?
Is there a time and place for her to share her feelings?
Is she welcomed to share her any feeling?
What is a good time to talk to children?
How safe is the environment for a child to share her feelings?
