I always used to spend my evenings ‘yabbing away’ to my friends on the phone but now there’s the internet and computer programs and iPads , kids seem to spend more and more time in the heads down position rather than actively communicating with others. A good old fashioned phone call is what you need!!! Phone a friend or a family member, you won’t be disappointed. Kids need to master the art of conversation and a chat on the phone is a great way to practice and it’s a great slowie too! This evening we put in a deliberate call to a friend to practise chin wagging ‘land line stylee’ and it was wonderful . How sweet to hear one side of a little 6 year old conversation. Lots of chatting and oodles of giggling. It’s good to talk!!!!
