How to Talk to Your Teenager
It has become increasingly noticeable that a number of our pupils feel that they can’t speak to their parents, or that their parents don’t understand them, their parents don’t take them seriously, and so on. We as teachers and parents need to be accessible to our children, our teenagers, the pupils we teach.
As teachers we often give pupils advice on how to speak to their parents, how to approach a thorny subject or emotive issue. We re-assure our pupils that parents will always want to do what is best for them. I have found some ideas and advice on how to approach, talk to and communicate with your teenager.
