Talking and listening to your child holds a lot of importance, as it helps your child build a bond with you and develop his trust. It improves the bonding in a relationship, and builds a child’s confidence. Not many parents have the skill to ‘listen’, but with a conscious effort, they can develop it. And slowly, with practice, you can better it as well.
➡️ When you are trying to talk or communicate with your child you should:
✓ encourage your child to open up with you by talking.
✓ be patient and listen to your child while he puts his feelings and thoughts across.
✓ respond in a sensitive way to everything that he says, good or bad.
✓ focus on body language and actions, so as to understand the non-verbal forms of his communication.
