W.A.I.T.—Why Am I Talking? Radio Series Update: As I mentioned last week, I am doing a new parenting series, called “Kids are from Krypton; Parents are from Pluto.” It’s on heartbeatradiousa.com every Thursday at 1:30 EST. You can listen by live stream or WRHB Heartbeat Radio for Women.
This week, the title of the segment was W.A.I.T.—Why Am I Talking? As you might guess, we discussed the need to listen to your kids if you really want to be able to really keep the lines of communication open. Next up: Getting to Really Know Your Kids…One Conversation At a Time. (March 3)
Top 5 tips of week 2:
- Respond, don’t react.
- Let your kids know that what they have to say is important.
- Talk to them on their level.
- Show your kids you love them…through your words and your actions.
