Keeping Positive Tabs on Our kids
1. When He/she seem to want to be alone more often: Now, this depends on the age of the kid involved. If your kid is a teenager and suddenly seem to withdraw, the chances are that she is having some personality issues or she is running low on self esteem.
On the other hand, if your kid is a teen or preteen, the chances are that he/she may have a bully on his case. Mind you it could be anything outside what I have mentioned here, the point though is that as parents, we need to always be on the alert to know when to step into a real situation before things are out of hand.
2. When your kid begins to act all jumpy and weird: Now you know a bully is definitely after him. These bullies have a way of making other kids dread school or have their victims looking over their backs all the time. If this is the case, you'll have to find a way to get your kid to confide in you. Children who are bullied usually don't come clean about it . They feel they can handle it, then things get out of hand, then they are afraid to talk about it. You will have to find a creative way to get the truth out of your kid.
3 When it becomes obvious your kid is having emotional problems: We are the best praise singers our kids would ever have. They need us to tell them how great and unique they are from time to time. Our teenage daughters in particular need our constant reassurance to build up their confidence.
Finally, we can all begin now to play major role in the lives of our children!
