To sum up: Try not to be afraid of talking about the difficult things in life with your children. But just remember only to give them answers to what they are actually asking about. They are naturally curious and want to participate in all sorts of feelings. Parenting with authenticity is the first step to guiding children to be courageously true to themselves and others. Being a model of emotional health is powerful parenting. Iben Dissing Sandahl #thedanishway #authenticity #happychildren
