Effective communication is a plus in any relationship, but it’s especially important in your relationship with your child. As your child feels confident that they can share information with you, and that you will listen and respond in a way that keeps communication open, they are more likely to feel they can come to you with challenging situations and to ask you questions about sex, their bodies, and anything else they want to discuss. Because communicating with your child can change over time as they mature, we think it’s really important for you to ask them for their input on how they’d like to have communication happen. Review our resources for ideas about having open and honest communication with your child.
