Most Important aspect of talking to your kids!
One final thought about talking to your kids…..
Don’t Be Dismissive.
If your kids open up to you, whether it is about bullying, romances going on a school, school work, the sports team, whatever it may be, don’t say stuff like. “Yeh, I know, that happened when I was a kid, they’ll get over it.” or “You’re being way too sensitive”, and “Come on, that’s nothing”. Do this and your kid wont talk to you about anything important.
Treat each conversation your kid decides to have with you as if it was the most vital and important conversation ever! Then, when it comes to the most important vital stuff…guess who they’ll go to??
That’s right YOU!
