Lighthouse Thoughts

Listening to your Child

Communication is key to successful parenting. Especially if you are an adoptive family.  Listening to, processing, and deciphering what your child says versus what he means or how he feels, leads to a better understanding and anticipation of his needs.  When you validate your child’s feeling he is more likely to communicate more freely. Effective communication can lead to underlying issues that may be causing behavior problems, adoption related or not.
