Betul katanya.. kadang mak ayah kita nak kita buat macam keinginan mereka, tanpa terlebih dahulu tanya pendapat kita. Kita pun terkadang silap menggunakan kosa kata dalam menyampaikan pandangan peribadi kita. Jadi, bawa berbincang itu penting.
Here are 10 pointers to help you negotiate effectively with your child:
1. Listen carefully to what they say: Before you jump in to let your child know what you think, listen carefully to what he is saying. Children are not very experienced in using the appropriate language to express their thoughts and feelings.
At times, they may even confuse us with their explanations. If you are upset by what your child tells you, walk away to calm yourself down before you respond.
When children explain themselves, they are looking for understanding. Once they know that you understand them, they will be more willing to consider other ways more positively.
