Talk Talk Talk


Let's say a child is having problems with a bully in school. Parents can coach the child on how to cope with the bully and perhaps go to the school to talk about this with a teacher. If a child has trouble making friends, parents can coach a child on how to strike up a friendship. If a child is having academic problems, parents can determine whether extra tutoring might be needed, or whether there is something that might be upsetting a child that could be hindering performance, or whether a child needs help improving study habits. All this is possible when parents and children talk openly, know each other well, and work together as problem-solving partners. That's the beauty of staying connected.
