Sometimes, kids just need an objective, third party observer who can provide a safe, comfortable environment when it comes to sharing sensitive information. You may notice that you have trouble getting your child to share his feelings, yet he seems at ease when chatting about his life with a neighbor or new acquaintance. When kids have emotional ties to someone, such as their parents, kids can feel unsafe and protective when divulging important information, leading to clamming up or acting out.
Kids know that parents instinctually take on the "fix it" role, and that parents will get involved however they feel necessary in order to prevent their child from trouble or discomfort. Ironically, this can inhibit children from free expression, because they'd rather avoid dealing with a parent's reaction.
Parents: don't take it personally if your child doesn't open up to you. If you are a parent, just getting your kids to feel comfortable with talking about what they are feeling or experiencing can seem like the greatest challenge.
