When talking to your child (children of all ages), you’re most effective when you are
talking to them at eye level. So, if your child is playing on the floor, and you’re trying to tell them something, get down on the floor with them to communicate the message. If your child runs up to you to tell you something, get down to where you are looking at their face to listen to their message. This shows your child that what they are saying is important to you. By
communicating in this manner, you’re providing an environment that is comfortable and inviting for communication.
