A culture of communication involves vocabulary around emotions. It also is the attitude and behaviors demonstrated toward emotions. To connect with your child's emotions you need a vocabulary and culture where conversations can happen.
Emotion words are only part of the picture.
Do you take time to listen to why the emotion is there? Do you take time to understand your child's perspective?
Saying emotions are important and then acting like they are a bother will teach your child that emotions are a bother.
To connect with your child build a culture of communication, especially around emotions.
