How we talk to our children matters! Our words become their inner voice. This workshop looks at the language we use with children and how we can change the language we are conditioned to use, to be more inclusive and encouraging. We will examine key phrases that we have a habit of using, including "Be careful", "No!" and "You're okay." We will dive into how these phrases affect children and what we can say INSTEAD of these things.
