Parents usually does not want to see their children, especially their daughters get hurt. But as a parent, what are the ways you should do to ease her emotional pain that was made because of her cheating boyfriend?
Teens usually get depressed when these things happen to them as if it is already the end of the world. Expect them to be emotionally challenged when confronting them.
We want to protect our daughters from any harm possible. It can be physical or emotional, but we want what is best for our children.
So here are some ways for you to help ease the pain and heal her heart. These are ways in which you can help without pressuring her.
1 – Give Her Some Space And Time
It is normal for teens to take their relationship seriously even though you can clearly see that it will be down the drain in a few weeks. Their boyfriends can be the only one to them so you cannot expect them to get over the relationship easily. You must let them cope up on their own selves. Just be around her just in case she needs somebody around to talk to.
2 – Do Not Let Her Shut Away From You
Although you want to give her some space and time, you should see to it that she does not detach herself from the whole world. She might want to stop going to school after the breakup to avoid the humiliation caused by the breakup. Do not let this negativity overcome her life. You should encourage your daughter to go out with her friends instead of staying at home. Her friends will also support her because they love her and will encourage her to cope up with the breakup.
3 – Be There For Comfort
Be sure to be there for you daughter when she needs you. Your daughter will need someone’s shoulder to cry on. Make sure you are there when she needs it. Your daughter will naturally coil up at first and will not open up to you for the first few hours or days after the breakup but when she will open up, just be sure to be there when she will share with you her feeling about the breakup. You can say something or just give them a hug. A hug is a powerful emotional comfort you can give to your daughter that will help her cope up with the breakup.
4 – Let Them Know You Understand Them
Acceptance is what teens ask for parents. They get their strength from the people who will understand them so let your daughter know that as a parent, you understand the situation she is in right now and how difficult her situation for her is. She needs to hear that you do understand and not just talk about anything that could damage her already damaged emotional state. So be careful when giving out words of advise, you do not want to give her an advise to move on because there are many other guys out there that will make them happy.
5 – Comparisons Does Not Help
Do not try to draw comparisons. Do not eventually compare your situation before if you were cheated by your boyfriend once or if you were not cheated you may know a friend who was cheated before. You will have to treat the situation she is in right now with the uniqueness and without any comparisons. If you try to compare, she will feel you are just not taking her situation as seriously as she thinks.
