QUICK TIP: Connect First
Do you ever feel like your child just isn’t hearing you? When you ask how school was, when you tell him or her to come to the dinner table, the list goes on. It is difficult for children to take in requests when they are distracted or feeling disconnected. Help your child to hear you by connecting first.
Application: Before asking something of your child get down on his or her level, make eye contact, or place a gentle hand on his or her shoulder.
