Chalk Talk: Tips for Communicating with Adolescents
During your child's adolescence they will be faced with situations and choices that you will have never faced. Many times as a parent you want to dictate how your child should respond to these issues. The best tool that you have is to keep the lines of communication open. Allow your child to talk to you and show interest in what they do. Even if you dislike the things they like find something positive about it. This is in no way saying don't be the parent and make rules. Realistically rules are vital to your child's well-being. Rules are a part of society no matter your age and children need to know that there are consequences to their actions. You can make rules and still be able to communicate openly with your child. They have friends and what they need is parental guidance. Try finding activities that you can do with your child. Talk about your day and ask and actually listen when they talk about their day. Let them speak freely and openly with you. If you don't like what they are saying or feeling and you react negatively that will be the last time they talk to you openly. If you disagree with them express that compassionately. You will find that with just a little practice you and your child will be communicating well.
