Our Target: We’re focusing on keeping our kids out of trouble by talking to them about where trouble can happen, and how to deal with a problem by talking about it calmly.
Team Up! Try These simple ideas to help your child want to talk.
Find a moment, right after school if you can, to ask your kids about their day. Ask about the best parts of the day first, then ask if anyone got in trouble during class. Hopefully your child wasn’t the one who got in trouble, but if they were, stay calm and talk it out for now. Talk about how trouble can mean several different things.
