Communicating with children and adolescents, explaining to them crucial aspects of the disease and the therapies they have to perform is not a discretionary choice, but a precise duty of the pediatrician, also sanctioned by international regulations. This article illustrates a patientcentered methodology to communicate effectively also in pediatric age. Its main elements are listening, the use of suitable mediators, attention to the feedback and the organization of the context. The pediatrician can thus become a facilitator of the processes of development and of the autonomous management of health in the patient and in the family, facilitating in all subjects the activation of important systems of empowerment and active collaboration.
