Tell Me Why podcast host Maria Botros speaks to Family Coach, Jasmine Navarro, about the importance of creating a safe space for children by actively listening to their questions and concerns.

  • Lack of effective communication within families seems to be the main challenge both parents and children face these days
  • Active listening exercises help parents learn how to build a sustainable relationship with their children
  • Parents should validate their children's feelings, each feeling has a message
  • It's normal to feel anxious about schools restarting, it's how we respond to the anxiety that matters
  • Parents should avoid forcing their children to do or feel a certain way
