Conversation starters – teenagers

Not sure how to get your teenagers talking? Try the following:

  • Ask “how am I doing as your dad (or other appropriate father-figure title)?” and “what could I be doing better?”
  • Compare notes on football or other sporting teams
  • Ask them to explain something they are interested in (a computer game, say, or a genre of music)
  • Discuss current events and why they have occurred

Tips:

Listen to your children

Focusing on one child at a time teaches your other children to listen and care about what is happening to their siblings.
