How To Improve Parent Teen Relationships

We’ve talked here several times in past about self-esteem in kids and self-esteem in teenagers. We’ve even talked about false self-esteem (what I call the American Idol Syndrome) and the dangers of it for parents and children.

Here is an interesting article on How To Talk To Teenagers. A large portion of it deals with self-esteem, but it is worth reading through to get to the portion with suggestions on how to start conversations with teenagers.

By this, they mean real conversations in which the teens are sharing their feelings, thoughts, attitudes, beliefs, and issues in their lives as opposed to superficial talk that doesn’t convey any real or useful information or doesn’t allow parents to really get to know the personalities their kids are developing.

Check out the article for ideas which will improve parent-teen relationships.
