Parent 10 Minute Check-In

Connecting with your teen every day is one of the most important things you can do as a parent or guardian. Think of this as figuratively taking the temperature of their lives and making sure they are doing ok. Ask questions, listen, empathize and assist. It easy! There's no right or wrong way to do this. Just do what feels comfortable for you and your teen.


Some ideas to get you started:

  • Start a conversation over some snacks-what teen doesn't like food?
  • Chatting while driving in the car is a low-pressure way for your teen to open up without the pressure of having to make eye-contact.
  • Pick an activity they like to do and spend time doing it together while you talk about their day.
  • Go on a walk or run together and burn calories and build a relationship at the same time.
