News for parents on parenting is that their needs are not the same need as their child. Awareness is recognizing the needs of the child. The relationship is taking the time to pause, connect and recognize their needs as having value. It doesn’t mean you give your parenting needs up, it means your children are not invisible and that they are valued, seen and heard! This starts pre-verbal and begins with parents having skills to identify their own needs.
