There are a few tips on how to communicate with your child in the best way possible, and here are the four of them:
1. Always speak to the child at his level.
Kneel or sit next to him so the child can look into your eyes while you are talking. In this way, you make him aware that you are interested in what he has to tell you. That you are not the big scary figure above, but that you two are on some level the same, and close. Listen to the opinion of the little ones. To start, ask him for an opinion what he would like to eat, what to play, and later talk about feelings. Probably at first, it will not understand the words, but it will feel very good. In this way, you learn from your child to express your feelings and not be ashamed of.
2. Be natural and patient
You do not have to talk to your two-year-old like a baby. If you overestimate the gesture or change the height of your voice, your child will certainly imitate you and think that such a speech is normal. Be patient, because small children may not be able to quickly ell adults what they think, want, and feel. It often happens that the child starts to bother you when he/she wants to say something quickly, so always calmly and patiently tell them to slowly talk because you have enough time to listen to them
3. Find the time and make sure you understand
Always find time to listen to a child when he wants to tell you something, even if you are on the job that can, of course, wait. When you are interested in listening to the little one, you encourage them to express their thoughts and ideas. Also, you can learn a lot about how the child sees the world and what features prevail in it, which can help you in his upbringing. Sometimes it will be difficult for you to understand what a child is trying to say to you, especially when a child is just learning to communicate. It is very important to let the child know that you are concerned to find out what he is saying to you, but you do not understand him.
4. Learn to listen to your child
Words and actions are very important, so do not be laughing while looking at the interests of your child, but try to understand. Although it may seem inconceivable and insignificant to tell you a little bit, learn to listen to it, because it is likely that a lot of information is likely to be covered by one very important one. Observe how your child communicates with other children. Never interrupt their conversation (except if there is a conflict), and if you notice that the child does not know how to pronounce a word or stutter while talking, try to practice later at home.
