Helping your adolescent develop and maintain healthy teen relationships can be challenging–especially when they stop talking to you. It can be hard to discuss such important teen relationship issues as sex, toxic friendships, sexual orientation and gender identity, or consent, but we can’t stop trying. Remember, you can have these conversations with your kids, or you can let someone else do it for you (like the Internet or social media!) No matter the subject matter, just keep talking. They may not act like they care or are listening, but if you plant the seed today, you may see the results later.
