Parenting Tip: Body English

Non-verbal communication speaks volumes, and often speaks louder than your verbal statements. Here are a list of non-verbal cues that tell your child that you appreciate them;

"Thumbs Up"
Pat on the back
High Five

Eye contact is also a powerful non-verbal cue. Turning your complete attention to your child tells them that they are important and that you are listening to them.

Sprinkle 10 non-verbal "I like You" gestures into the day and watch how your child responds. Come back and share your experience with us. I look forward to hearing the results!
