THE TOP 5 TIMES & PLACES TO TALK

How well do you know your teen’s mental health?

One of the biggest challenges parents and caregivers face with their teens is engaging them in meaningful conversation. Attempts to do so are often met with one-word replies, grunts, blank stares, restlessness, or teens just playing on their phones.

 

Finding the right time and place to talk to your teen are critical factors for success. While we offer some ideas, the best time and place to talk with your teen is anytime and anywhere both you and your teen are comfortable.

 

Here’s our list of the top five times and places to start the conversation:

  • In the car
  • Mealtimes
  • Spend time together
  • While being entertained
  • On their time
