Mind Matters: What To Ask Your Kid Instead Of ‘How Was School?’

There’s never been a more complex time to be a parent. While parents have more resources than ever at their disposal, they are also plagued by greater demands, higher expectations, and more anxieties over their children’s well-being. But one thing has not changed: parents still struggle to understand and communicate with their children. On this episode of Mind Matters, we’ll take a look at why children may find it difficult to talk about their emotions, and how parents can support them.
