LISTEN TO WHAT YOUR CHILD IS PLAYING.
ASK YOUR CHILD TO DRAW A PICTURE, AND LOOK TO SEE WHAT HE/SHE BRINGS. FOR EXAMPLE, IF A CHILD HAS HAD A STRESSFUL EVENT, ASK THE CHILD TO DRAW A PICTURE OF THE EVENT. THEN THIS PICTURE CAN BE A CONVERSATION STARTER FOR PARENTS.
KEEP CONVERSATION’S DEVELOPMENTALLY APPROPRIATE SO YOU DON’T LEAD YOUR CHILD IN THE WRONG WAY WITH AN EVENT. SEE WHAT THEY KNOW FIRST.
