The way we talk to our kids is important.
It shapes the way they think, communicate, and connect with others (including us).
There’s no one-size fits all approach to communicating with children. However, it is incredibly important to keep the universal truths mentioned in these quotes in mind as we talk to the kids in our lives. Our words, our tone, and our consistency all matter.
"Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder."
"The way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice."
- Peggy O'Mara
"We are apt to forget that children watch examples better than they listen to preaching."
- Roy L. Smith
"Speak with your children as if they are the wisest, kindest, most beautiful humans on earth, for what they believe is what they will become."
- Brooke Hampton
"Listen earnestly to anything your children want to tell you, no matter what. If you don't listen eagerly to the little stuff when they are little, they won't tell you the big stuff when they are big, because to them all of it has always been big stuff."
- Catherine M. Wallace
