The value of everyday moments

“You can’t impose on kids your own timing. You just have to wait for that moment when they want to talk. It might happen when you’re washing up, when you’re driving the car or maybe late at night when they walk into your study.” – Sue Le Souef, solicitor

  • The more everyday moments you spend with your child the more opportunities it creates for them to talk to you when you are ready
  • You don’t need to spend every moment asking lots of questions. Just being together is enough!

Tips:

Space travel

When you first see your children after a long absence, take the time to really listen to them as they tell you what has been happening.

Tips:

Show your children you love them, always

Don’t just spend the fun times with your kids and then withdraw as soon as things get serious – love means sharing the tough times too.
