Actively Listening

As a parent, you may find that there are times when it is challenging to communicate with your child. However, your child’s everyday experiences offer them opportunities to develop their communication style. As your child grows, you can use strategies to support your child to help them feel connected and respected. By using positive communication strategies like active listening, you can help develop a safe environment where your child feels heard.
