The basic meaning of the word communicate is to “have something in common with someone”. Through the process of communication, parents and children express their needs, desires, worries and also their love and affection for each other. In order to have good relationships, we need effective communication.
Communication can be both passive and active.
Passive is the art of listening.Through the silence of listening, the parent helps the child find his way through his problems and discover new solutions.
In the active communication, the parent reflects the message of the child and creates a bridge of connection and negotiation. In this process, the parent uses the first person (I..) instead of the second (you..) which is less imperative. The parent communicates the message of what he feels (eg I feel sad when you do X), rather than imposing the child of a certain feeling (You should be ashamed that You make feel Z)
It is difficult;it needs practice, persistance and patience. But it is certainly worth it.

The 3 basic tips for better parenting
If you have young children, you know exactly what it takes to be a good parent. Here are the basics for newcomers and not only
1)Patience. Being the mother of two young children, 4 and 7 years old, I think that being patient reserves you much more energy than you can imagine. If you wait a little before you react to the stimulus, you can win the case without much effort
2)Consistence. If you say one thing today and the opposite tomorrow you won’t make it very far. Staying solid at your beliefs, teaches the child that he cannot always have it his way; and thus must learn to adjust.
3)Love. Making your little ones believe that you actually love them can help you convince them that your actions is for their best interest. Love makes miracles.
Try, practice and repeat and then you can move on to the next steps!
