How To Talk To Your Child At 6-11 years of age

This is the age when kids start taking actions and build up the courage. As kids enter their school years, they become increasingly independent, spending much of their days outside the home in school and with peers. But talking with your child is still essential for bonding, sharing ideas, opinions, and information.

Do you know this is the age when the left side of the brain develops?

The left hemisphere of the brain controls learning and information processing. This is why proper academic sessions start from this age.

This is an important time in your child’s emotional development. By listening to and valuing your child’s opinions you nurture their self-esteem, social skills, and communication skills.

  • Make time to hear about the day’s activities; be sure your child knows you’re actively interested and listening carefully
  • Remember to talk with your kids, not at them.
  • Ask questions that go beyond “yes” or “no” answers to prompt more developed conversation.
  • Take advantage of time during car trips or standing in line at stores to talk with your child.
  • Make time for sporting and school events, playing games, and talking about current events.
  • Encourage your child to read books and stories that are slightly above his or her competency level.
