If having a conversation with your teen makes you feel confused, frustrated, or like you need a translator, you’re not alone! Caregivers who are parenting teens often tell us their kids shut down and won’t say anything, don’t listen, or dismiss them with grunts, eyerolls, heavy sighs, and slammed doors. Communicating with teenagers is a skill that requires creativity, patience, and practice. 

Learn how to “speak teen” and move beyond, “Whatever!” and “You just don’t get it!” When you are parenting teens, you can build a stronger connection with the young person in your life. It helps to engage in different kinds of conversation. To make it a little easier, we’ve created this printable tool to help guide you when parenting teens.  



Here’s what you’ll need:

1. Printed conversation card

2. Time to be fully present

3. Curiosity
