Podcast Episode 261: 1 Easy Habit To Get Kids To Open Up More

We’ve all been there…you try to talk to your kid and they answer with the dreaded “I don’t know” or they simply retreat into silence, their lips sealed tighter than a vault.

Ughhh! It’s so frustrating!

But before you resign yourself to the sound of crickets, consider this: sometimes, silence speaks volumes. Rather than pressuring your child to talk, you can create a safe space where they feel comfortable sharing at their own pace. Sometimes, the most meaningful conversations happen in the spaces between words.

In this podcast episode, we’ll share the 1 easy habit to get kids to open up to you more- by exploring the art of active listening, offer tips for communicating with your child when they seem closed off, and delve into the transformative power of truly hearing what your kids have to say.

In this episode of the No Guilt Mom podcast you’ll learn:

  • How to communicate with your child when it seems like something is up but they’re giving off the “I don’t want to talk vibes”
  • The importance of recognizing that when your kids share things with you, it can be intimidating or emotional for them
  • How to manage your own emotions when your children disclose or open up to you
  • That recognizing your child’s willingness to open up to you can strengthen your relationship and create opportunities for great conversation in the future
