Parenting, Children and Teens
Children make many demands on their parents. The way parents respond to the children’s demands teaches children about the kind of world they live in. Children learn to trust or mistrust, to feel safe or afraid, to feel loved or unloved based on the way people, especially their parents, respond to them.
