The research study I mention in this video above proves what we moms know in our hearts… that a sense of connectedness is vital if our kids are going to grow up “happy”. When kids feel connected (at home and at school) they are protected from:
- Violent behavior
- Extreme Emotional distress
- Suicide attempts
- Drug abuse
- Early sexual activity
For more tips on creating this sense of connectedness for and with your kids, I highly recommend the book I mention in the video. In the mean time, let’s keep showing our kids in ways large and small that we know who they are, we LOVE who they are and that they are important to us.
