The Right Questions

Tweens want privacy. It makes them feel grown up and adult. Instead of phrasing questions that feel probing, be cautious of your phrasing. Stay neutral to the various topics you discuss. Ask your child questions you might ask a friend. Questions like, “How is French class going this year?” or, “Is it better if I drop you off a little closer to school instead of right outside?” Let your children feel as if you are genuinely asking their opinion versus probing for information.
