Do you Communicate with Your Kids?

Parenting is hard to deal with at any age. You may be going through the terrible two’s or the teen years, but you need to remember things will change and it will get better. It’s important that you stand strong and continually communicate with your children because you’ll go wrong and have a harder time dealing with things if you do.

Here are two tips that will help you with no matter what you’re dealing with right now.

1. Communication

Communication is key to a good relationship with your child. You need to talk to your children on a daily basis. Even if you simple ask them how their day was and what they learned in school. When your children see that you care about them and what they’re doing, they will feel more comfortable talking to you about the difficult things like drugs and smoking.

Whether you’re busy or not it’s crucial you talk to your kids. Do your homework online and see what kids their age are doing, enjoy, and like. When you do this it will make it easier to find things to talk about. If your child is in sports or sing in the choir you can talk to them about practice or events they’ll be attending.

The most important thing to remember is to do it. Talk to your children every day. Over time you’ll see how much five or ten minutes a day will improve your relationship with your children.

2. Discussions

Talking to your children about drugs, alcohol, or sex is hard to do but it must be done. It’s unfortunate, but we must talk to our children about these things early and often. You will thank yourself when your children grow up healthy and not in trouble.

You need to talk to your children about these topics on a regular basis. When your children get to be of dating age, it’s important you remind them about this every time they go out on a date. No matter if it’s a group setting, a single date, a dance, or a game, you need to remind them of the discussion you had and ask them to be responsible.

Talking to your children may be hard at first, but over time it will become easier and you’ll cherish those talks because it will bring you closer to your child. The older your children get the more peer pressure they have and the harder things are for them to deal with. When they know you care and what they do is important, they’ll know they can come to you for anything and everything.
