What should you do?

When you talk to a small child, say a 4 year old, 6 year old, 8 year old, 10 year old. Should you stay standing up or should you lower your body and be down on their eye level

Why do you think this ?

    You could both sit down. That might help

    For a 4 year old it is best to get down to their level. Some 6 year olds will respond better if you do so too. However, by 8 years old there should be no need to even bend down to them except in very noisy locations where they might not otherwise hear you.

    Generally, I would get down to eye level especially with the younger children. It puts them more at ease.

    It is a good idea to get down to their level for 4 or 5 year olds. After that most children are not affected by talking with adults.
