Hi <<Name>>,

How often do you hear “I don’t know” from your child? If they are anything like my kids this will happen quite frequently! Sometimes I have just asked them a tricky question, other times they are just not interested in the topic!

But we want to keep them talking and trying, don’t we? And we really want to hear what they are thinking, right?.  Over the years I have discovered a few phrases that seem to work for us. And along the way I have also talked to various teachers and education experts to get their thoughts too. So thought I would share!

I summarised it all in the graphic below for you. It’s on our Instagram feed if you want to open and bookmark it for later?
 


Overall there are 2 key things I learned.

First is to keep things positive with lots of “praise points” e.g. “That’s really interesting…!”. These are great to encourage kids to keep talking and sharing, and not become shy and scared of “getting it wrong”. Second, to keep things moving with certain “flow phrases” eg “What would your teacher say to this?” – little remarks to push them along, advance thinking and take conversations deeper.

You can pretty much apply them to every single conversation you have with your child, especially when using the questions from your members area of KidCoach. Try it out and let us know you get on.

And make sure you forward these tips to your parent friends - even better is if you ask them to sign up at www.KidCoach.app to bring them into our community 😀

Hope you have a great conversation with your child today…and stay safe!
