Communicating with Teenagers

Are you having trouble connecting with your teenager?

Does it sometimes feel like you’re both speaking in a different language?

Here are some parenting tips that can help you open up the lines again.

  • Let your teenager understand that privileges and independence need to be earned.
  • Find low-pressure situations that will naturally breed communication, such as when you are in the car together.
  • If you need to impose negative consequences for your teenager’s negative actions, make sure that you are able and willing to actually implement them.
