One of the hardest things about being a father is effectively communicating with your kids on important topics. As awkward as some conversations may be, it is necessary that your children feel they can come to you. Unfortunately, sometimes we can approach subjects in a way that cause our child to shut down or make them feel uncomfortable.
To really engage in a dialogue with your son or daughter, take note of the topics that are toughest for him or her to bring to you. We have narrowed these subjects down to 5, though there are countless more: dating, sex, friends, faith, and divorce. Read and find out more on how to dialogue about the 5 toughest things for children to talk about with their parents.
Huddle up with your child tonight and ask them: “What is the toughest thing for you to talk to me about? Why?”
