Questions better than “how are you” that will get your teens talking


It is completely normal to have different shifts in connection with your teen. One day, you may feel like you know everything about them, and then the next, you're wondering who this person is in your home. I get it. Teens are regularly trying on different beliefs and personas, to see what fits. Many times, they have a difficult time expressing themselves, even if it is to answer a "simple" question, such as "How are you?"  Below, you will find some connective questions to ask, instead, to reconnect and bond further

  • What made you laugh today?

  • What superpower do you wish you had today?

  • What can I learn from you today?

  • Who was kind to you today?

  • What made you laugh today?

  • What new thing did you try today?

  • What do you wish I knew about you?

  • If you wore a warning label today, what would it say?

  • If you could tell me anything without fear or judgment, what would that be?

  • What’s your favorite childhood memory?

  • What is something you wish you could forget?

  • What do you wish you learned at school?
