Health Tip: Show Genuine Interest in Your Child

(HealthDay News) -- Your child must learn to relate to his or her parents before fostering relationships with other children.

The National Center for Infants, Toddlers and Families offers this advice to parents:

  • Make sure you have time each day to interact with your child, enjoying uninterrupted, unstructured activities.

  • Make sure your child sees that you are genuinely interested in his or her activities. Offer positive comments and feedback.

  • Show your child how to express feelings in ways that are age-appropriate.

  • Recognize and respect your child's feelings.

  • Limit TV time, and expose your child to playtime with peers.
