Can your daughter come to you to talk about anything? How do you make sure she knows she can?
I try to encourage my girls to talk to me, but I know they don't always tell me everything, but one is almost 22 and one is 17.

I tell her this frequently, so I hope that she would be able to. She is very reserved, though, and sometimes will not tell me directly what is bothering her.
I tell her. .I tell both of my kids
I always listen and give her eye contact. If I am in the middle of something I can't stop I let her know I want to listen but she needs to wait til I am done and give her a time. She is only 7 so I have never really told her she can always talk to me about anything, but I think I need to start.

She knows she can but she is only 4 I'm sure that message will be harder when she gets older
yes, of course.
Right now she can, but she is only 6. I have never managed to continue that with my teens, unfortunately.
