How to Survive Early Childhood – Separation AnxietyMay 4, 2018
- Attachment:- Comfort your child when they are sick, hurt or upset. Be warm and sensitive towards your child's needs. Talk, listen and respond to your child. When you will be apart, talk to your child when you will be back. Saying things like "I will see you after school", or "I will see you tomorrow" reduces anxiety.
- Behaviour and Temperament:- Appreciate your child's good behaviour. Always try to describe your child's behaviour and not the child. Explain to them what they did wrong and the behaviour you would like to see.
- Self Regulation:- Help your child to decrease their stress. Help them get enough sleep, eat healthy foods, be physically active and have less screen time. Assist your child to learn what it means to feel calm and focused. Help your child to understand the difference between their own needs and needs of others.
- Brain Development:- A Child's brain begins to grow in pregnancy and continues into early adulthood. The most critical time of growth is the first 2000 days of your child's life. There are ways you can help support the growth of healthy brain in child. Building a secure and trusting relationship. Supporting your child's senses by allowing them to explore new sounds, foods and toys.
