Why is it that as parents we can ask children over and again to do something but they don’t seem to hear us? Parents can feel like they are nagging which can be very frustrating for both parents and children. Sometimes it can end up in parents yelling in the hope that children will listen.
On behalf of Parenting SA, Jodie Benveniste, Adelaide psychologist, parenting author and Director of Intuitive Parenting, provides parents with helpful tips on how to communicate with children so they listen and how to build cooperation rather than conflict.
