Say Less, Listen More! – Insight On How To Interact With Teens More Effectively
We get it wrong when we interact with teens and pre-teens. At least, that was the main point of an interesting article I read this week. In this episode, I talk about how adolescence changes the dynamics of the family, and how we can make changes to the way we interact with our teens and pre-teens to maintain the relationship and connection we crave with them. My three main points in this podcast are:
- The fear of getting “shut out” is the root of ineffective interactions with teens.
- Stop asking questions.
- We forget and don’t give kids credit for their capabilities and what they can handle.
