  • A secure attachment is necessary for your child to gain a good sense of him and become aware of his value. By responding to his fears and anxieties, you comfort him and allow him to move on without you. This "base of love" will serve him all his life.
  • But be careful not to overdo it. To gain confidence, your child needs freedom. He likes to have initiatives under your eyes and then congratulate him, rather than doing everything in his place and preventing him from acting lest he fall.
  • It's up to you to find the happy medium by not letting him try everything "so that he understands by himself". Your role is to put limits on him, especially when his safety is at stake.

  • "He's always been clumsy," "Already in my belly, it did not hold up" ... Before your child, do not talk about him in derogatory terms. Without necessarily wanting it, you could lock it into a negative judgment. If he hears that he has always done silly things, he can deduce that this is his nature, so why would he change? To give him confidence, value his actions. Say rather that he is curious and not "untenable".
