Ideas to get your child to talk to you

Having two girls, I know how hard it can be to get them to talk. They often respond by saying, “Yeah, uh-huh, yes, no”.
You got it, one-word answers.

My mentor taught me that there are 3 categories that people like to talk about. When I learned this, I immediately understood which categories my daughters like to talk about.

The 3 categories are:

  1. People like to talk about themselves
  1. People like to talk about other people
  1. People like to talk about events or objects

Find which category your child falls into. This may help them open up and start a lengthier conversation.
