In order to build trust, we have to continuously make emotional connections with our kids.
In life, we make deposits into our bank account so when we need that money later, we can withdraw it. That same principle applies to parenting, but not with money, with emotional connection.
Psychologist and parenting expert Dr. Todd Corelli says parents need to make regular deposits in their child’s emotional bank account. That way, when you make a withdrawal, your child will still have feelings of trust, safety, and connection saved in their emotional reserve.
