When children reach adolescence, most parents want them to include them in their lives, to share their experiences, dreams and stories with them. However, for this to happen, a good communicative dynamic must be established from childhood. We can’t wait of children who have never been listened to that they become open and expressive young people. Therefore, we want to show you some tips to strengthen the dialogue with children when they are still young.

Why is it important to strengthen dialogue with young children?
Talking to your little one during their childhood may not seem so essential. After all, it is from puberty that they may need more advice and guidance. But you are wrong, because the first years of life are fundamental for this aspect.

Your time and attention are the best sign for them that they are interesting, valid people who have a lot to contribute.
These early learnings help your child succeed later on many levels. Indeed, charisma, self-confidence, assertiveness and other communication skills are essential in school, work and social spheres.
