How to Build Trust in Relationships: An Essential Part of Parenting
What does it take to be a good friend? What are the qualities that make a great friend? How do we help our children not only pick good friends but also BE a good friend? At the core, relationships are centered around trust. Can I trust you? Do you have my back? It’s primal. As an infant we learn whether or not we can depend on our caregivers to meet our needs.
In this thought provoking conversation, my special guest, Samantha Barkley and I discuss the importance of building and maintaining trust with your child. How consistency in parenting and discipline help to build feelings of safety, security and trust. How this primary relationship sets the foundation for all future relationships.
You’ll discover how micro-violations of trust and seemingly innocent untruths we tell our children can undermine their confidence in everything we say after they learn the truth. Be sure to tune in to learn how to build trust, develop strong friendships and help your kids do the same.
