Warmth and compassion surround the day for nurturing the inner child and children in your life. Show them you care and love them, even when they make mistakes. Build trust by listening and don’t over react when situations occur. Praise them when they succeed, support them when they struggle, look them in the eye when they talk to you and above all else give them respect as you want to be respected.
Stop being so hard on yourself and those around you. Everyone makes mistakes, even you. Take a deep breath, learn from it and try your best to implement a better reaction next time. Listen to your own inner voice and trust your instincts. Show compassion to both yourself and those close to you. Through this approach you will gain their attention and they will listen (even if the “they”, is your own inner child).
