Having trouble talking to your children?
Sometimes it’s difficult to get kids to sit down and be quiet for long enough to listen. Other times, they might get a bit withdrawn and sullen and it's difficult to find out what’s wrong. Try waiting until just before bed when they’re calm and if you’ve got something you need to talk about, introduce it slowly at their own pace.
If they’re quiet and withdrawn, wait until they’re busy playing and join in with them for a while and then you could raise what it is you need to talk about. Sometimes children become withdrawn as a sign of stress, so there might be something wrong.
