A Parent’s Job as your child gets older:
Soothe and Celebrate your child just because… not because of what they do, achieve or look like.
Cultivate resilience: know that your child is inherently good even when they make mistakes :
You matter!

First Step:

“You can handle this. Let’s figure out some ideas how to….”
“You will survive- even though you don’t know this right now. No matter what I will be there for you.”
