As caregivers, we’ve all had those struggles trying to communicate with our children. Your child isn’t sharing what is going on in their lives. You find yourself lecturing or nagging. They are lost in their electronics and ignore what you are trying to say. You aren’t sure how to communicate appropriately to your child’s age.
To effectively communicate with your child you must first build a relationship with them. You also need an understanding of their brain development. After this, you can learn how to communicate with your child in more effective ways: listening to understand, having empathy, and being present.
