How are you at asking questions? Have you mastered the art of drawing someone out of his or her shell?
There’s a skill that every parent needs to learn. It’s the simple art-form of asking questions. Thoughtful questions have a remarkable way of getting teens to think outside the box. They make a young person evaluate what’s really going on inside. And… when asked a thoughtful question… a teen feels valued.
So… Mom and Dad… do you want to connect with your son or daughter today? Are you ready to show that you value them? Try asking a good question. Not a yes or no question … but one that really makes them think.
Then …wait for the answer! And listen.
