Having meaningful conversations with kids is one of the best ways to connect deeply with kids and build their confidence, kindness, and creativity. In today’s episode, I’m joined by Rebecca Rolland, nationally certified speech-language pathologist, Harvard Graduate School of Education lecturer and author of The Art of Talking with Children to share some incredible simple, practical strategies you can use to help you better connect with your kids through great conversation. I’ve already started using her tips with my own kids, and have seen a huge difference in only a few short conversations.
We talked about:
- The importance of conversation for connection and confidence
- Why we often struggle with deep conversation
- What rich talk is and specific steps we can take to start creating more of it
- Strategies to take our everyday conversations with our kids to the next level
