TALK WITH YOUR TEEN

You are having a respectful conversation with your teen when you are:

  • Able to have a conversation with your teen even about a tough issue
  • Able to actively listen and your teen is responding
  • Able to use a tone that says "I care about saying this to you and you are an important person to me." in any situation
  • Able to back off if your teen wants to keep something private
  • Able to allow your teen to have a different point of view than your own and do not continue to try and 'win' the conversation as if it were a debate
 
WHEN YOUR TEEN WANTS TO TALK:

  • Stop what you are doing
  • Look at your teen
  • Give your full attention
  • Listen to what is said
  • Comment on what you think you heard
