4 Ways to Improve Communication In Your Family

4 Ways to Improve Communication In Your Family

Communication is key in any family, especially with the busyness that life brings. From running your kids to and from school and their activities to taking care of yourself and doing your hobbies, it can be easy to lose touch. Shell’s Early Learning Center offers the best daycare and preschool in Maryland and Delaware. Below, we’ll offer up four tips to help you improve your communication in your family. Get in touch with our team today.

Schedule Family Time

Your days can be packed, and before you know it, it’s time for bed and you haven’t really seen your family. By scheduling family time and family activities into each day, you’ll be able to spend that quality time together that your kids and you need. Simple things such as reading a book for 10 minutes work.

Do Family Meals

Eating is a great time to catch up on what is happening in each other’s lives. When your family sits down for a meal together, everyone is relaxed, and it gives everyone a good chunk of time to talk about their day. Your kids can tell you about what happened at school, and you can discuss fun family events coming up together.

Actively Listen

These days, it can be super hard to actively listen when you have so much going on in your life. However, it’s important to listen to each family member without interrupting them and give them a chance to talk or to vent. This means putting away your phone, turning off the TV, and truly having a conversation.

You’ll see a significant difference in your child when compared to their peers who had no early education opportunities.

Make Memories Through Traditions

If you think back on your childhood, odds are, there was something your parents did on a routine basis that stands out from the crowd. When you make simple things routine, such as tucking your kids in bed at night, praying together, going grocery shopping every Saturday morning, and the like, you’ll create many opportunities for better communication.


Shell’s Early Learning Center values communication both in families and in our daycare and preschool. We offer a parent communication app that you can use to check in on your infant and preschooler throughout the day to see how they are doing. This is just one way that we actively support parent involvement and feedback.
