Parenting Tips:

Positive Family Communication
is Important:
Parents who communicate positively
create an environment that encourages
the development of emotionally secure
children and a stable family.

Action Plan for Positive
Parent-Child Communication:

1.) Choose words that your child
can understand.
2.) Be a good listener.
3.) Be direct, honest, and open.
4.) Be sensitive to the emotional impact
of the messages you send your child.
Think before you speak.
5.) Make time each day to have a
conversation about anything
you or your child like to discuss.
6.) Use questions in conversations with
your child to show your interest and
to generate an open response.
