Write a Letter To Your Teenager

Yes. A letter. On a real paper.
Many parents of teenagers tell me they are having a hard time talking to their teenagers and sharing their thoughts and feelings with them. I offer them to write them a letter. A real letter, with a pen and paper. Not a text message, not an e-mail. Put down on paper whatever you want to tell them, share with them how much you love them and believe in them. Put the letter next to their pillow and wait. Don't expect anything. They might write back but they might not. They might say something the next day, but they might not say a word. It doesn't matter. What matters is that you open a new way of communication. And I believe that an essential thing in every relationship is communication. So write a letter to your teenager.
Yes, a letter. On a real paper.
