Understanding their mood, and what communication skills you have will help to you to know where you can make adjustments in boosting them positively.

Be open in your conversation with them by asking them questions such as;

  • How do you feel when you’re down or discharge?
  • How do you handle situations?
  • Have you ever thought about a painful exit? 

Don’t fear the question you want to ask your child because it enables your child to trust you and feel safe that they can talk to you about anything whenever they’re down. 

Gathering information from your child allows you to connect misinformation and enter the conversation where they are ..

Knowing their moods and knowing what to say to them could either build them.
