Spend time with me. Enjoy me.
Tell me what you like about me.
Help me find the words to tell you how I feel.
Help me feel big and proud. Honour my feelings.
Tell me clearly what you want from me.
Be firm. Say No. I depend on you to set limits for me.
Let me know you still love me when you don't like what I do.
Keep me safe when you get mad at me.
Let me learn by trying things. Comfort me when trying makes me cross.
Say sorry when you're wrong. Show me it really is okay to make mistakes.
Coach me. I learn how to act by copying you.
It's my job to be the kid. I need you to be the grown up.
