Most conscientious partners want the best for their newborn child, adopted child and even their “furry” four-legged kids. How you choose to set up the emotional environment for bringing baby into the world is not only one of the dynamics to the structure of your child’s emotional awareness, but the essential factor to ensuring your child’s overall wellbeing.

Following are some keys to implement into your daily life to create a nurturing and loving environment:

Really loving someone… Rod Stewart sings, “Have I told you lately that I love you?” I cannot stress enough the importance of telling your child both audibly and affectionately how much you love him or her. When you touch your child’s life with warmth and genuine care for his wellbeing, you are growing the bonds that will last a lifetime and beyond.
Getting in touch with your own inner child… Another key element to creating a wholesome, value-filled life for both you and your children is to learn how to love from the inside out. How do you do this? You do this by learning to love all the parts of you – from the innocence of your own youth to the present moment of who you are right now. When you learn how to forgive yourself for your past indiscretions and your past hurts, and you learn how to embrace the experiences of your core being, you are quintessentially developing the whole you to become the best you.
Plan your escape! Have fun! If each day in your life was filled with constant seriousness, what a mundane way it would be to live. For you and your child’s sake, it is imperative to let go and cut loose from time to time. Take an hour, a day or however much time you can devote to spending “special” time with you and your child (or children). Plan a trip to the zoo, maybe a day out in an adventure in your own backyard, or perhaps just some time to talk about what is on your minds. It is amazing how imaginative children can be. Perhaps you can ask your child (both young and old alike) what you she or he would like to do? Keep the dialogue open at all times.
Learning to be perceptive… What is your child thinking? It is difficult enough sometimes to imagine what your significant other is thinking, harder still to comprehend what is going through your child’s mind. But, with the right set of intuitive skills and conscious awareness, you can begin to pick up on the signals that your child is emitting. The best way to develop your perceptual or intuitive skills is to learn how to hone in on what appears to be usual behavior of your child compared to strange or sudden changes in her behavior patterns. You do this by making yourself aware and paying careful attention to what your child is trying to say to you, verbally/non-verbally, physically or emotionally. Most often, it is in the silence of our environments that we become keenly aware and begin to perceive these patterns.
Overall, relationships on any level and at any age require work. Not tedious work, just a commitment to be prepared for anything and the willingness to both lead and compromise so that you can create a safe and loving environment for all concerned. All of what I have just said should be approached with love in your heart. For when there is love, it is felt and appreciated by all.
