Talking to him regularly as we mentioned in step 1 is good, but it’s true that in everyday life, there are all sorts of possible interruptions. The idea is to put him in a setting where he feels cherished, appreciated not just because he is one of the links or members of the family like anyone else but precisely because he is unique.

Depending on the family composition, it’s easy for a child to feel overlooked in favor of the mass. Some children demand more attention than others on a daily basis. Some may feel less valued.

This step involves spending some one-on-one time with your child in a supportive setting. This kind of appointment should be planned in advance. Start thinking about what would make him happy for a privileged time just for him: what does he like? What would delight him enough to be comfortable enough to talk about anything?

I remember a child passionate about soccer whom his parents never accompanied to see a match of his favorite team. I assure you that the family had the means, yet it never occurred to them.

By thinking ahead, opportunities at a lower cost can be seized. Some would love for you to simply accompany them on a school outing or an external competition.

Do for him what may not have been done for you.

Think of a framework of trust and love to talk, listen, observe in a different way than the everyday with the previous chapters. There are things we don’t have time to ask them and they can’t tell us on a daily basis between meals and tooth brushing. It’s in moments like these that you can ask:

  • What do you aspire to do in the future?
  • What makes you cry? (This question can shed light on battles your child is ready to face in life in order to be a solution.)
  • Do you regularly have the same dreams at night? (As incredible as it may seem, this can reveal the unconscious sighs of his heart). I remember a boy who regularly dreamed of standing in front of a desk, facing a crowd. He eventually became a speaker, sometimes addressing hundreds of people.)
  • What’s your opinion on…? (Children can have very good ideas even within the household.)
  • If you had 3 wishes to make, what would they be?

The exercise associated with this step is to reflect on a major appointment with your child and plan it.
