    Set clear boundaries; your first responsibility is to be a parent. Be as open and approachable as possible, it is important for the child to know they can come to you with anything.

    Use an empathetic and friendly tone when speaking to them, as it creates a deeper connection. And, make sure your child knows that even though you may not be happy with certain behaviours—you love them unconditionally—this allows them to thrive and flourish.
