Your conversations are important to your son, whether he expresses that or not. Make sure you are having these conversations with your teen son before he leaves home. Check out Tools for the Journey: Conversations You Need to Have With Your Teen Son.
Here are Carey Casey’s tips on talking with your son:
- Meet him in his world.
- Discover what is important to him and talk about it.
- Ask open ended questions and then actively listen.
- Be honest in your assessment of where they are mentally, physically and spiritually.
- Hold an open posture and be inviting in the way that you are listening.
