There are two different roles that parents can play and one is the nurturing role and the other one is the structure role. If you are in the nurturing role then you are providing love and validating their feelings. You are giving them a lot of time and attention, there is such a thing as being too nurturing, and you will want to balance that with some structure. The structure role offers more of a sense of safety.
- You can be divided into two categories when it comes to parenting, nurture and structure.
- When you nurture, you make sure their feelings are acknowledged and it can be a good thing.
- If you are nurturing too much this can be a problem, and you may need more structure.
“You make time for your kids, show an interest in them and their activities, and encourage them to pursue their passions.”
