Effective response needs effective communication, parent to child.
Read our Top 5 Communication Tips, for parents ready to begin the conversation:

  • Be available and accessible. Kids open up at unexpected times. Maybe as you turn out the light to say good night; in the car on the way to soccer practice; or, when you least expect it. Seize the moment if your child starts talking.
  • Stay current. Watch shows he watches; know where she goes on the internet.
  • Ask questions – if you watch a program on binge drinking, ask, “What do you think about that?” or “Have you ever worried about a classmate in this situation?”
  • Stop talking and listen. Don’t interrupt. Don’t just think about your next response. Hear his words. Consider hers.
