How to Communicate Positively with your Child

Effective Communication
(Involves Both Listening and Talking)

  • Purposeful conversation- talking with each other in order to understand what the other means.
  • Reflective listening responses which indicate you understand the child’s feelings.
  • I-messages…blame-free messages about your positive feelings and about things that bother you.
  • A nonjudmental attitude which respects the child.
  • Appropriate timing.
  • Restricting talk to friendly exchanges as much as possible.
  • Avoiding pressure, sarcasm, and ridicule.
  • Avoiding labeling.
  • Showing your faith and confidence in your child.
