How to Get Kids to Talk to You

Nov 9th, 2009 Posted in eHow Articles, Parenting | no comment »

Here’s an excerpt from my latest eHow article: Time after time I hear my fellow moms express their exasperation that their kids don’t talk to them. Kids often grunt, shrug, or mumble the word “fine,” but they don’t really communicate. We all want our kids to be able to talk to us about anything and everything. We want them to want to share their troubles, their triumphs, their e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. I am one of the fortunate moms that can honestly say my boys won’t shut up. It is something I treasure and can share some practices that could make it happen for you.
