Health Tip: Communicating With Kids

Make sure you have time to listen
(HealthDay News) -- Communicating with your children can be a challenge, but there are things you can do to start the dialog.
The American Psychological Association offers these tips to help parents talk with their kids:
Make yourself available when your child is most willing to talk, whether it's at bedtime, in the car or before dinner. Initiate the conversation to help your child recognize that you're interested in what's happening in his/her life. Each week, schedule time for a one-on-one activity with your child, and don't allow interruptions. Take an interest in things your child likes. Instead of starting the conversation with a question, share what's been on your mind.
