These tips really work!
Sometimes it’s really difficult to figure out how to START a conversation with preteens and teens, because it feels like you live on different planets. Search Institute’s questions help to bridge that divide, engaging families in meaningful conversations that give a voice to everyone around the table. These discussion topics can encourage relationship building as family members discover and build common ground.
Excellent conversation starters! They are open-ended and non-threatening.
