We all want our kids to talk to us about their lives. We want to know what makes them happy, what makes them sad. We want them to open up!  So how do you do that? You can teach them, nudge them to spill the beans. 

My advice: Be like a reporter and DIG! But DIG carefully.

Check out the video below, it may give you some new ideas on how to get your kids to talk to you!

How do you get your kids to open up?


Here are some quick tips that have worked for me!

-Start talking to your child very early on, the earlier you start, the better at communicating they'll be

-Be empathetic

-Take the time- put down the phone! (yes, I'm guilty too!)

-Be engaged

-Ask open ended questions

-Listen to it all!
