Tune in to your feelings and calm yourself first, especially if your child pushes your "buttons". When you are calm, you will not pass the stress to your child and will also be more responsive.


Adult caregivers’ responses to children play a crucial role in how they perceive themselves. Responsive care that considers the child’s needs and interests creates a positive sense of self and develops secure attachments.
