EP 12 - How to Communicate with an Uncommunicative Teen The Parent & Teen Toolbox

    • Parenting

In this episode, I talk about how to communicate with a teenager who doesn’t really want to talk to you.
 
When teenagers are in the home - communication suddenly takes on a different form!
 
Perhaps the only communication going on at the moment is yelling and door slamming. It’s not unusual.
 
Maybe there is silence - as everyone appears to be trying to avoid one another.
 
Let’s face it - teenagers often become less keen to share what’s going on in their heads - and they tend to retreat to their room for peace and quiet. That’s normal.


But despite all this - it is important for parents to keep the lines of communication open - so that you can help them and support them when they need you.
 
The key points to remember are :


✔️ Building Rapport :
