One of the most important factors in helping a child grow into a kind, responsible and respectful adult, is how you speak to and interact with them. When it comes to children especially, it's often the small things done consistently that have the biggest impact.
Consistent negative words can cause negative feelings and contribute to stress, anxiety and low self-confidence.
Consistent positive words and interaction can have a long-lasting impact on mental wellbeing, attitude and overall happiness.
