Talking with your teenager

A great tip to keep open lines of communication with your teenager is to go gently when you need to ask questions. Sometimes our anxiety causes us to come on a little too heavy, too soon, but taking an open approach is a good way to stay gentle, tactful, and supportive.

Try asking questions like “Something seems to be frustrating you, do you want to have a chat?” If you can give them the space to respond when they’re ready, you will usually be more successful than if you’d made a direct or repetitive line of enquiry.
