Our kids WANT to talk. Sometimes, the reason they don’t is because REAL conversation with Mom or Dad isn’t something that they do often. But, it’s not always THEIR choice. Too many parents don’t recognize the cues that their children give that are a clear declaration of, “I really want to talk.”
Many times our kids want to talk about things that haven’t crossed our minds. Instead of always being focused on the task in front of us or what’s on the radio while we’re driving, parents need to look for the open doors of conversation that their kids are presenting them dozens of times per day. Parents need to be able to read their kids’ body language and tone of voice.
In this video, I share a personal story about my son and some insights on how you can always be ready when your child gives you the cue that "it's time to talk." Believe me, you don't want to miss those cues!
