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.
CASA - Court Appointed Special Advocates
Every year children in the 28th Judicial District of Kansas (Ottawa and Saline
Counties) are thrust into the court system through no fault of their own. Some
are victims of physical violence, emotional torment or sexual abuse.
Others have been neglected or
even abandoned by their own
parents. Most of them are
frightened and confused. Many
have never known what it is to
live in a safe place. The Ottawa
& Saline County CASA program
recruits, trains and supports
community volunteers who
speak up for children who have
been abused or neglected.
