Introduction:Somewhere, talking to your children become more difficult than it really has to be. There are a few classic "lines" that you can use that will make talking with them easier and even fun. They will help promote a healthy relationship between the two of you as well as increasing their self-esteem.
What else can be better to say to your child than "I love you?" Leave off the "and" as well as the "but." Let them know you love them, no matter what.
Yes, you should tell your children you are sorry. You are a parent and you are not perfect. They know you aren't perfect. It won't kill you to let them know that you know this also.
Unless your child has started World War III, there is not much they can do that can't be fixed and forgiven. Let them know this. Just like you, they aren't perfect. They will make mistakes and they need to know that doesn't change how you feel about them.
Instead of asking a million and one questions, let your child take control of the conversation. This works with pre-school children as well as your child who has pre-school children of their own. Let them express themselves openly and freely, without fear of judgment.
Truth be told, this is pretty much the only job a parent has. Let them know you are there, right beside them and not leaving them. Make sure you articulate that you are with them, whether they think they need you or not. By letting them know this, you will find they will be letting you in more often.
All parents want healthy, happy and well-adjusted children. A few simple phrases from you can make this happen. Children, no matter what the age, crave to hear their parents let them know they are loved. These few simple lines will do just that.
