The power of being face to face…..

One very powerful way to engage and connect with your child is to get to their eye level and be face to face with them. This helps them to connect to you, to know that you are talking to them, it helps them understand and to listen to you.

Recently my crazy dog ate a macadamia nut and needed surgery to remove it. She then had to stay quiet in a cage for about 2 days to allow it to heal. I had taken her out to go to the toilet and then when it was time to go back in she refused to come to her name. I found myself kneeling down to be eye level with her and then calling her name. She came to me immediately. Connection to someone or in my case my dog in this instance allows easier communication and conversation.

By getting down to your child’s level and being face to face it lets them know you are listening, you are there and you care.

Give it a go……crouch down to their level or lift them up to yours.
