QUICK TIP: Listen Actively

Our children communicate with us in many ways other than with their words. Pay attention to what your child is communicating through their words, play, affect, and behavior. Listen to understand and reflect back what you see. Your child will feel seen, heard, and understood- and that's a great feeling to have! Application: Instead of asking a question, make a reflective statement. For example, rather than saying "How was the party?" you could say "You look like you had a great time!" Questions or Thoughts? Let me know!
