A Few Tips to Remember

  • Don't expect to have all of the answers, it is ok not to know. Figure it out together!
  • Inspire conversation by opening up about your own experiences.
  • The more you are willing to share, the more they will be willing to share with you.
  • If you share parts of your life they were not there for, they will share parts of their life that you're not a part of.
  • Listen and support your teen.
