Raising emotionally stable children

The most defining quality of a human being is the capacity to form and maintain relationships, so that we could coexist and function within a society. Emotional wellbeing can be described as the developing capacity of children to: experience, regulate, and express emotion; form close, secure, interpersonal relationships; and explore the environment and learn – all in the cultural context of family and community. Children’s emotional development is harder to visualize and to measure than are other aspects of development. However, it is no less important than other forms of development, and in many ways is key.

Here are some elements of Emotional Wellbeing
Gestures – Eye contact, Smile, expressions:
Engaging with peers and adults
Identity of self in relation to others
Recognition of ability
Expression of emotion
Empathy and regard for others emotions
Social understanding

Some ways to nurture emotional well-being:
Tell your child you love them
Be Available, Play together
Eat meals together
Listen and empathise
Praise and acknowledge actions
Positive comments
Spend one on one time with children

And, one of the most important habits for nurturing emotional stability is enabling reflections. Whenever you notice your child doing something for eg. Either expressing a negative behaviour or a positive one, later during the day ask them about it. For eg. You notice your child helping someone on the street or hitting someone, ask them “How did that make you feel”. Remember not to make a big deal out of a negative behaviour. The intention is not to humiliate your child or make them feel bad; rather it is to teach a crucial skill of empathy and empowerment.
