Ask Questions — and Listen

If your daughter has come home upset about someone being mean to her, ask her questions about the situation rather than jumping to conclusions. As parents, we can learn a lot about what our children say, and sometimes the issue is simply a misunderstanding or even just a product of being in preschool. Sometimes my daughter will come home saying so-and-so is being "mean," but after asking her a few key questions, I am able to realize it's really just them not understanding fully how to communicate yet.
