Real Talk: A parents paradise to explore.

I often find that my work in the kitchen helps to open up conversation.  Teenagers in my world are not the easiest to connect with.  Many are distracted with the Youtube, Xbox, and everything in between. What I’ve found, and now I’m using it as my special recipe to discuss homework, peers, goals, conflict resolution, and every teenage topic in between.

It’s been a real challenge getting to this point, but I now know that the kitchen is a place for real talk. It took much to long to figure it out, but finally, it’s a paradise I plan to continue to explore. What’s your secret recipe that gets your teenager, child, or children to TALK.  Communication is important, and remember, often times our child/children really need us to LISTEN instead of giving orders.
