Communicating with
Parents/Teens.




     Alexus Gros
Sometimes . . . .
If you feel your relationship with your parents is
strained, try easing into conversations. Talk
about how your day was. Ask them about their
day also. Chatting with parents every day not
only keeps an existing relationship strong, it also
can help a frayed relationship get stronger.
Sometimes there is lack of communication.
Teens don’t want to listen, and parent’s always
want to be right. That’s not what matters to me, I
think teens should have a comfortable
relationship with their parent’s. They should be
able to talk to them about anything and
everything, without a problem.
Communicating Tips :)
• Watch what you say, parent’s tend
  to take the slightest raising of
  your voice, as an attitude.
• Tell the truth, if you lie you’re just
  going to get your self in more
  trouble.
• Tell them how you feel, why you
  feel that way, what’s going on,
  and why you think it’s going on.

What to do…
                 What if?
        What if your parent’s don’t listen?
  What if you don’t want to hear what they say?
 What if things don’t change, and communication
             problems are still the same?
   There’s all of these unanswered questions.

If your parent’s don’t listen, there is probably a
reason. Maybe they feel you’re not giving them the
respect that they deserve. If you don’t want to hear
what they say, just sit down and listen anyway. If
things don’t change, there is not much you can do.
Just show them respect, and as time goes on things
might slowly change.
There could be a change!
-If your mom or dad, maybe both, ask how
   your day was, answer respectfully. Give
   them details so a good conversation can
   be held.
-If your mom or dad corrects you about
   something that they see you doing, then
   STOP, without hesitation. Maybe that
   could be the problem with why there is
   very little communication going on
   between you and your parents.
Teens…. -___-

We all know teens have an attitude
 while being told to do something. If
 you don’t like what’s being said,
 sometimes you roll your eyes, smack
 your lips, stomp your feet, or raise
 your voice. DON’T do that. It will
 only cause more drama than what’s
 already going on in the household.
Parents!!!!
Don’t tell your teen that the
 communication is all their fault. Tell them
 that there needs to be work done on
 BOTH sides. It will make them feel better,
 and maybe they’ll listen to what you
 have to say instead of catching an
 attitude with every word that comes out
 of your mouth.
Here are results with communication
               issues:
