It is very important to build a positive family environment by enhancing family connectivity.
The environment in a family is essential for the development of children. A hostile environment will make them fear and grow full of insecurity and lack of confidence in themselves and in the people around them. When this happens, children grow emotionally unstable and may even develop mental illnesses in the future such as depression.
It is essential that parents fight to have a positive family environment in their home where love and respect for each other are the fundamental pillars. It is worth remembering that respect is never infused with fear, but through active listening, empathy and assertiveness. If you respect your children and treat them with dignity, you will receive the same treatment. Otherwise, you will also receive the opposite treatment. What do you prefer?
FAMILY CONNECTIVITY AS THE STRONGEST BOND
Connectivity is the mutual emotional bond between parent and child that lasts and lasts over time. Connectivity creates a sense of belonging and children feel safe and protected in their family nucleus, essential for them to develop emotionally balanced . The basics in this case include participating in fun and meaningful activities, creating moments of personal intimacy, developing family traditions, and providing space for each other when needed.
The connection between parents and children serves as an emotional protection factor, helping to prevent the appearance of many physical, emotional or social health problems in adolescents. Family connectivity works from top to bottom, this means that if you share your parenting tasks with your partner or with another person who helps you raise your children, you can develop a parenting style that works to promote this important connectivity for the children.
HOW TO DEVELOP EMOTIONAL CONNECTEDNESS IN THE FAMILY
There are a few steps that can help you develop a good parenting style:
-Think about the parenting style you want to have in your home. You can ask yourself these questions: What are your goals? How do you define a successful parent? What values do you want to instill in your children? How can you help your child be a successful adult?
-Create an action plan. Consider creating what you might call a parenting mission statement, outlining the various areas that are important to you and your family, and what you want to make a priority.
-Establish a system that supports team upbringing: agree with your partner how you are going to approach parenting together. For example, a small problem can be handled at a certain time. However, the most important discipline problems can be handled together after you have had a chance to discuss the situation, in private.
-Allows mistakes in your upbringing. You have to be aware that there is no such thing as a totally perfect father or mother. Mistakes exist and what matters is learning from them and above all, knowing how to act once that mistake has been made. Guilt, anger and conflict do not help either of you or help your children.
-Search for professional help. You don’t have to feel bad if at any given time you must seek the help of a professional. If you do not reach agreements with your partner when raising your children or your family life is a constant conflict and you do not find how to create that family connectivity , then you will have to go to a psychopedagogy professional to help you create the good family atmosphere that you want so much and that you all deserve.
