Parenting TipCommunication 

The key to good communication with children is to listen. In our busy lives it isn’t always easy to stop what we are doing so we can listen closely to our children and value what they say – but it’s worth it.

Taking time to listen to our children builds trust and honesty. If we listen to our children they will learn to listen to us and to each other. It is important that both adult and child are able to repeat back what has been said in order to ensure there are no misunderstandings.

Communication should be age-appropriate and child-friendly, and for children communication should be positive and strengths-based.
