We just can’t communicate. That is usually complaint confide there common issue with their siblings. Both generations seems to be pessimistic about fixing it. This only makes conflicts more difficult to resolve
After hearing all the sides of the story. It seems that there is a formula on how can we make that communication path open. I recommend using this pattern. I’m not an expert, however, it might just work, right?
Here, conversations techniques that really works;
Keep your cool
The ideal way to talk with a teen is matter of factly, showing respect for his ideas while clearly and non defensively stating your own. This static works both ways.
Time it right
Arrange a specific to talk later. This will have time clam the emotion and let both side conversational. Like going out together for a snack or lunch on the weekends or for dinner is an ideal way catches up one on one when is ready talk.
Simple hold those unwanted emotions if not needed. This will just add confrontation to both parties. Keep it cool, stay focus. You just might understand more the underlying reason why each other act that way, instead of throwing those ideas at the same time.
