Communication is key, whether you are the parent or carer of a young child or a teenager. Good communication skills will benefit children for their entire lives.
As young children grow, their communication skills become more complex. They learn to understand and use language to express their thoughts and feelings and to connect with others. In the early developmental stage Parents, family members, and caregivers are children’s most important teachers and communication models. Your everyday interactions with your children help build their brains and support their communication development.
Here are a few strategies to aid communication
- Make time to hear about the day's activities and be sure your child knows you're actively interested and listening carefully.
- Ask questions that go beyond "yes" or "no" answers to prompt more developed conversation. Once you’ve made a start, ask them to think about the way the two of you talk.
- During car trips or standing in line at stores or bed time, talk with your child. Take the advantages of time wherever it is possible to make conversation between you.
