1) Chat With Your Kids
You’ll never trust the adorable and fascinating things that leave your kid’s mouth’s the point at which you really talk and hear them out. When you shut out diversions and chat it up with your kids, you will really bond with them. Contingent upon their age, you can build up an alternate arrangement of inquiries however I sit down and pose to the accompanying five inquiries to my kids:
- Who did you play with at school?
- Did anything make you miserable today?
- What did you long for the previous evening?
- What was your preferred piece of the day?
- Is there anything extraordinary you need to do this end of the week?
These inquiries stream into different discussions where you kid feels great imparting subtleties to you. They will begin to discover that when you sit down for a chat session, it is their time to reveal to you anything they are feeling and that you are there to truly tune in.
As an option, we regularly play “Would you Rather… ?”. In this game, you alternate posing senseless inquiries like “Would you rather have 10 monkeys as pets or one elephant?” or “Would you rather eat frozen yogurt on pizza, or broccoli dunked in chocolate?” Each inquiry gets sillier and we have a great time playing.
