Six things children need

The SKIP approach is based around the Six Principles – six things children need to grow into happy, capable adults – as outlined by The Discipline and Guidance of Children research report.

  1. Love and warmth
    You can never spoil a child with too much love. Showing warmth and affection builds trust, positive self-esteem. and strengthens your relationship.
  2. Talking and listening
    Talking with kids and really listening to what they say makes them feel heard and builds their confidence.
  3. Guidance and understanding
    Consistency involves predictability. From an early age, children learn that an action has consequences.
  4. Limits and boundaries
    Rules keep things safe and fair for the whole family. They need to teach mostly ‘what we do’ rather than ‘what we don’t do’. They need to work for everyone – for children and parents.
  5. Consistency and consequences
    Consistency involves predictability. From an early age, children learn that an action has consequences.
  6. A structured and secure world
    Safe, supportive environments provide security and reduce conflict.
