Its important to me and I cant do it
Imagine your child has said this to you, how would you react? What would you say or do?
Its not important
its not that big a thing
you don’t need to do it
How would that make her feel?
Everyday someone says to you verbally, non verbally, in those exact words or not ‘it’s important to me and I can’t do it?
Here let me help you, I can see its something you really want or need to do, let me see if we can do it together until you are able to do it yourself.
How does that make you feel?
