Ways to connect with kids at home

As humans, we are hardwired for connection. We may not feel a real depth of connection through small talk, and likely feel even less fulfilled scrolling news or social media.  But, we do feel closer with a warm heart-to-heart.

In school, we try to build a genuine feeling of belonging through conversations where each person has a chance to share their stories and hear other perspectives. 

That can happen at home too, and summer is a great time to start.

You can hold these conversations at home to build trust, communication, empathy and social emotional learning skills.

Take a look at this weekly summer guide to having meaningful conversations at home.
