Five Tips for Effective Communication with Your Child

1. Listen with your whole body. When you sense that your child needs to talk, give them your full attention. Face them, make eye contact, kneel down to get on your child’s level if necessary – even tilt your head – to show that you are really listening.
2. Acknowledge your child’s feelings. Empathy is one of the most powerful and comforting responses we can give to another person, especially a child. When you acknowledge those feelings, you validate them. This includes those feelings we often think of as “negative,” such as anger, frustration and disappointment. Often, acknowledgement of their feelings is all the child needs to begin dealing with the problem at hand.
3. Try to see the situation through your child’s eyes. Try to step into your child’s frame of reference before reacting. We often expect our children to understand adult-like ways of thinking and we don’t give consideration to how they might be thinking or viewing the situation.
4. Avoid shaming your child; rather focus on behavior. Shaming a child diminishes their worth. A child doesn’t know how to correct being defective but he can learn to correct his behavior if given instruction in a supportive and encouraging way. 
5. Encourage your child to think proactively about solutions. When faced with a decision that you and your child disagree on, ask your child what he wants to happen or would like to change. This helps them see that there are options to every problem. When we encourage our children to become part of the solution, they often have greater motivation for resolving it.

 Dear Parents,
We are in full swing into 2020! Unfortunately, we are also at the peak of the flu and cold season. As a reminder, we require that children be fever free without medication and have not vomited for 24 hours prior to returning to school.  To help reduce germs, please have your children wash their hands when they enter the classroom and when leaving. If you have any questions, please give us a call or talk to your child’s teacher.

We have received so many complements about the Imagination Childcare program and we are asking you to share our special school with friends and family. When you refer a friend to Imagination Childcare you can receive one week of FREE tuition after your friend’s 3rd week of paid attendance. This discount will be for one child only. Additionally, your friend will receive $100 off of their enrollment this month!

THANK YOU all for the special gifts and treats that we’ve received this Holiday Season! You are appreciated!

Lastly, the 2019 tax statement will be to you by January 31. You will receive it on your sign in sheet.

Happy New Year!
From Your Management Team
