Pay Attention to Your Timing
- There is the old saying that you want to strike while the iron is hot, but sometimes striking while the iron is too hot can be counterproductive.
- Often kids need the right amount of time to cool their emotions in order to have productive conversations, so pay attention to your timing when you have important things to discuss.
- Based on everything you know about your kids, when are the good times to have conversations with them? For example, are they usually freshest and calmest in the morning? When are the bad times to have important conversations?
