In all aspects of parenting open lines of communication with our children are vital, from preschool children through to our teenagers making the transition to adulthood. In this Webinar, Mary considers the importance of how we communicate with our children and offers practical advice for parents on how to communicate in a positive and proactive manner. She also considers the child’s internal voice, and how to support them to develop a growth mindset, with an inner voice that helps them to reach their full potential.
