Are You a Supportive Parent?

Being a supportive parent means having your child’s best interests at heart but also being present, involved and helpful. It includes:

  • actively encouraging them to do their best with school, their hobbies and interests
  • listening without judgment and seeking to understand their concerns and challenges
  • acknowledging their achievements and supporting them through mistakes and challenges
  • setting consistent expectations and consequences to help them to feel secure and able to predict outcomes
  • treating them fairly and developing a trusting relationship.
