the need for dialogue and by that we mean to exchange dialogue with our children without investigation or trial, but the dialogue is based on General issues .. We listen to him and see his ideas.


The need for self-confidence is some of Also actions For a religion that kills this need through the method of excessive protection, cruelty in dealing, excessive pampering, or comparing the child to another child .. This encourages the child to hate others and not rely on oneself.
