10 Tips for Developing a Good Parent and Child Relationship

There is nothing like being able to have a good relationship with your children. To help you get there, we suggest 10 useful tips here.

1. Get off to a good start

The closeness of parents and children depends mainly on how the relationship began in childhood. Studies have shown that parents who take more than a week off to be with their newborns have a close relationship with them that continues as they grow, go to school, become adolescents and older. Is this a cause-and-effect relationship?

Theorists believe that the more attached a parent is to their newborn, the closer they will be to them throughout their life.

However, this is not essential because good relationships can be created even late. What is important is to devote a lot of time to children and to ensure their education.

2. Remember that every relationship takes work

When it comes to relationships, biology gives us a good start. Indeed, if we were not biologically programmed to love our children the human race would have died out long ago. Likewise, children instinctively love their parents.

Relationships between parents and adults can therefore sometimes be stormy, but the most important thing is to remember the bonds of love that unite you.

This is the same solution that applies to happy marriages. The key is to invest in the relationship and remember that it won't always be easy.

3. Find time for your child

To create a good relationship between parents and children, you need to spend time together. So, if you think that the quality of the time you spend with your children is the most important thing then you are making a big mistake.

The quality of time is a myth. There is no magic switch you can flip that will instantly make relationships good with your children.

If you spend all your time at work or your child is always with their friends, it will be difficult to maintain a close relationship. So you need to find time to be together. Quantity and quality are aspects that therefore go hand in hand here.

4. Encourage confidence

Confidence begins in childhood. When babies are one year old they feel united and confident with their parents because they can count on them to provide them with everything they need physically and emotionally.

This trust must therefore be maintained. To win it, there are various ways to go about it. The most important thing is to create a reassuring emotional framework for the children.

Then avoid making commitments or promises that you will not keep; also show them that they matter by taking the time to remember what interests them.

However, we should also not forget that confidence also means being able to believe in your children and in their ability to be more and more independent.

5. Be a support for them

Think of your children as you would a plant that will grow and grow. Programmed by nature, this plant needs sun, water, fertilizer...to develop fully. You must provide him with all this and this is the role that falls to you towards your children.

Little by little, children have experiences and form their perception of the world. They must therefore feel supported and encouraged by the people around them. This will give them the self-confidence necessary to flourish and take on new projects.

6. Respect must be reciprocal

This may be obvious, but very often this aspect goes unnoticed. You need to set boundaries for your children by teaching them respect, patience, and empathy if they want to be treated the same. 

At the same time, you must also show them respect by addressing them gently and being careful with the words you use.

7. Good relationships are formed through daily interactions

You don't have to do anything special to build a good relationship with your child. The time you spend together and the things you do are necessary alone to create the connection.

So, going to the supermarket, doing homework, talking about your days it is from all these elements of coexistence that the relationship is born.

However, it is important to pay attention to certain criteria because criticizing or denigrating a child does not create a healthy foundation for a relationship centered on love and trust.

8. Get into the habit of communicating quickly

It is important to encourage communication at a very young age. When your child is in kindergarten or at school and he comes home, you can, for example, ask him questions about his school, his friends, his activities, etc.

It is fundamental to communicate very early because this will encourage your children to talk to you when they are older. Therefore, even if you are concerned, it is important to learn to listen to your children. They will then know that they can count on you.

9. Put things into perspective

If your child cries and says things to you like “  I don’t understand you, mom ” or “ I hate you, dad,  ” don’t take it personally. After calming down he will certainly come back to ask you for forgiveness. Indeed, when they are young, children cannot always control their emotions.

In these cases, what you should do is take a few deep breaths and try to regain your calm; you will also need to be careful to control the tone of your voice.

Your discussions should be able to take place in a calm tone. If after a few minutes, you still feel angry, it is best to postpone the conversation.

10. After every argument

After every argument, both parties need to apologize to each other to encourage the relationship. This point is important to avoid lasting disputes that create a separation between the two parties. Remember that creating trust and commitment is crucial to a good relationship.


Nurturing a strong and loving relationship with your children requires dedication, patience, and understanding.

By prioritizing quality time together, fostering open communication, and showing mutual respect, you can build a foundation of trust and support that will last a lifetime. Remember to approach each interaction with love and empathy, and to always strive for forgiveness and reconciliation after disagreements.
