Parents how do you greet your children in the morning? BRUSH YOUR TEETH! HURRY YOUR GOING TO MISS THE BUS! Or do you say GOOD MORNINGI hope you had a good sleep last night:) How do you greet them when they come home from school or when you get home from work? DID YOU DO YOUR HOMEWORK? WHY DIDN’T YOU THROW THE TRASH? Or do you ask them HOW WAS SCHOOL? DID YOU HAVE A GOOD DAY? Maybe it sounds a little weird to speak nicely like this to them, but isn’t this the way you would treat someone else’s kids or your boss or co worker? Don’t you think your kids deserve YOUR best? This is the reason why some kids don’t like to talk to their parents, as they get older it’s like pulling teeth just to get them to answer you. Maybe this is what they have learned from you. Maybe they are not comfortable having a nice CONVERSATION with you. Take a moment and think about it. If this is you, it’s never too late to start over. It’s never too late to change your ways. Begin to talk TO your kids rather than talking AT YOUR KIDS. Don’t greet them with statements or questions, be polite and greet them properly. You can do this, I believe in you!
