7 TIPS FOR TALKING WITH YOUR CHILD
1.  Speak with your child in an unhurried way, pausing frequently.
2.  Reduce the number of questions you ask your child.
3.  Use your facial expressions and other body language to convey to your child that you are actively giving undivided attention to your child.
4.  Set aside a few minutes at a regular time each day when you can give your undivided attention to your child.
5.  Help all members of the family learn to take turns talking and listening.
6.  Observe the way you interact with your child. 
Try to increase those times that give your child the message that you are listening to him/her and they have plenty of time to talk. 
Try to decrease interruptions.
7. Above all, convey that you accept your child as he/she is.
