In the book Cosmic, the main character, Liam, is reading a book called Talk To Your Teen. Talk To Your Teen gives you advice about how to handle situations with your teen. Here is my idea I would add to the book.
If you feel like your teen doesn’t come to you for advice or help, that might mean that they don’t feel comfortable talking to you or they know that you don’t listen to them. A simple but good way to let your teen know that you’re there for them is listening to what their problem is and think about how to help them. When they are being open with you, the last thing they want to hear is their idea being shot down or you not accepting the concept that they are proposing. Another way you can understand your teen is to try to put yourself in the situation they are in, then try to help them out by giving advice that you would want to hear. Once they feel like they can come to you with an open mind and they know that you will listen to everything that they tell you, they will most definitely come to you. What I am am saying is try listening for a change!
