Top 10 Emotional Needs

Top Ten Emotional Needs of Children (and most adults)

Here is a list of what could be called the top 10 emotional needs of children, in alphabetical order.

  1. Accepted
  2. Believed in
  3. Cared about
  4. Forgiven
  5. Loved
  6. Safe
  7. Supported
  8. Trusted
  9. Understood
  10. Valued

We believe that if parents adequately fill all of these needs, the child’s or teen’s behavior will take care of itself. We also believe that feelings predict behavior, so if children have positive feelings, positive behavior will naturally follow.
