Royal Parenting Trick We All Need To Try

And experts are applauding them for it.

If you watch the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their children as they tour Canada, you'll notice they have one consistent parenting trick: kneeling down to talk to them.

Experts agree crouching down and talking to children eye-to-eye is a form of "active listening," which can boost self-esteem and encourage communication.
