At some point during pregnancy, most expectant mothers tend to experience rising anxiety about labor and birth. You might be very excited to meet your baby, but actually having the baby might be making you feel really scared. This is completely normal. First-time mothers and even mothers who have already had children are facing the unknown. You’ve probably heard horror stories from well-meaning people, which won’t help you feel calmer. Here are some top tips to help you manage your nerves.
Children are great at picking up skills, abilities, and emotions. Kids who are raised in a positive environment, surrounded by people who validate them and have largely positive feedback tend to have better self-esteem than kids with negative feedback, and little or no positive validation.
Unlike what many people think, poor appetite in young children is not inborn; instead, it has more to do with the surrounding environment. Therefore watch out for any sudden lack of interest in food in your child as it could be a manifestation of a struggle they are undergoing.
