Health Tip: Show Genuine Interest in Your Child

And offer positive feedback
(HealthDay News) -- Your child must learn to relate to his or her parents before fostering relationships with other children.
The National Center for Infants, Toddlers and Families offers this advice to parents:
Make sure you have time each day to interact with your child, enjoying uninterrupted, unstructured activities. Make sure your child sees that you are genuinely interested in his or her activities. Offer positive comments and feedback. Show your child how to express feelings in ways that are age-appropriate. Recognize and respect your child's feelings. Limit TV time, and expose your child to playtime with peers.
