Special Discussion: Top Tips: Communicating with Teens
It’s often said that communication is the key to a healthy relationship. While it might sound like tired advice, it’s a skill worth learning that will help us do better in all our relationships. As your child grows up, the way you communicate with them will need to change to reflect the new boundaries in your relationship created by their increasing independence. Discovering these new and different approaches to communicating effectively with one another will be a learning experience for you both. Effective communication with your teenager can help you both feel happier and more connected in your relationship, and more confident about having difficult conversations and resolving conflicts.

My best tip...
Isolate them.. in the bush is great (Camping/walking) or in the car (no phones!) anywhere they are not distracted by other things so you can get their interest and attention.
Like their Pa it is a waste of time trying to talk to them when they are distracted and have electronic devices.
