Children Learn To Trust Themselves When Adults Trust Children

‘When I grow up, I will need to make decisions for myself, and to do this I will need to trust myself, to ‘give it a go’, or to ask for help. I must prepare myself for the possibility that I might make mistakes, and to know that I can learn from them. This will help me develop resilience and self-worth. When my parents show trust in me, I experience care and regard in a relationship of respect. I am developing autonomy and empathy, rather than dependence or apathy.’ http://www.parentskills.com.au/blog/hardest-lesson-helping-our-young-one...
