We spend a lot of time analyzing the language and actions children use while conversing with their parents. They are disciplined when they need it, and we teach them proper etiquette and discourage them from acting rudely. Even yet, we may not always pay attention to the words and actions of our Parents.
The Benefits of Speaking in a Positive Tone
Using the right words and a positive tone of voice may have a significant impact on the quality of communication between parents and children.
Your Child is More Prone to Listen
This is common sense. How would you want to be spoken to? Would you rather be spoken to in a harsh or critical tone, or in a calm, reasonable, and pleasant voice? Even if you and your kid disagree, or you need to chastise your child for anything he or she is doing, a soft voice is more likely to capture your child’s attention and encourage them to pay attention to what you have to say.
Being Harsh Isn’t Effective
In the long run, it is more likely that yelling at your child would destroy your connection with them than help. In fact, research shows that yelling may be as harmful as an aggressive discipline. As long as you are concerned about your child’s long-term well-being, it is evident that speaking gently is the best approach to get your point across.
Kids Learn From Your Behavior
You will get your child to talk politely to you if you speak politely to him or her yourself. And what if you continually criticize them and speak harshly to them? That is all you need to know about what you will get.
You’ll have a Stronger Relationship
Respect and compassion build your relationship with your child. Thank and please your child, and tell them to do the same. Good manners and respect bring people together; hateful words and voices do the reverse.
Your Child Will Be More Respectful
When you use a positive tone of voice at home with your child, they will automatically do the same in school and other places. People will soon comment on your child’s great manners and a good way of speaking. They will be proud of these talents, which will carry them into adolescence and beyond.
