If there is something good that they have done, make sure that they know about it by telling them how proud of them you are.

Talk openly and honestly with your children whenever possible, because doing so will allow them to feel comfortable enough talking about things that concern them or trouble their minds on the matter at hand. If there is something that bothers or troubles their mind, let them talk about it.

Try not to use phrases like “no” or “stop” with your children. Instead, try using “let’s talk about this” or “let’s discuss this issue” instead of those words.

By doing this, it will make them feel comfortable enough to talk about the issue at hand. It will also help them understand that they can ask for advice whenever they want without being scolded or reprimanded for doing so.  

Be sure that they understand what you mean by using those phrases. Make sure that they know what is expected of them by showing them how it is done properly instead of just telling them what should be done.
