  • teach and encourage your child to try new things
  • recognize his/her efforts

  • praise him/her for their efforts and improvements
  • spend time with your child (play, cuddle, read, sing, talk and listen)
  • provide structure and consistent routines (mealtimes, bedtime, discipline)
  • have realistic expectations
  • avoid comparing
  • avoid encouraging competition
