The Best Ways To Get Your Children Listen To You #1

Good communication skills are the foundation for building a great relationship with your kids. However, so many different elements get thrown in the way that listening and communicating aren't always easy or effective.
Here are some techniques that you can use to improve communication with your kids. It doesn't necessarily mean they'll mind you or agree with what you're saying, which is okay, but at least they'll hear what you're saying.
Talking vs. being heard
Mother:"I've informed you a googolplex times to abstain from vexing your sibling."
Child:"Huh, Mom?"
When you talk to your kids, you must keep a few things in mind.
If you have something to say, and you want to be heard, do the following:
*.Get down to your children's level.
*.Use simple words.
*.Get to the point.
*.Don't yell.
