How can you encourage your teen daughter to open to you about her relationship with a boy?
I know that everyone who has teens have a hard enough time keeping the communication line open - But it seems having them open to you about what they do with their BF is even difficult to achieve. Or at least for me.
My 17 yo daughter just got a BF about 2 months ago - She does share tidbits of what happened in school- etc. But nothing too personal. I think she is embarrassed to tell me about it.
I want her to feel free in sharing those personal things with me- partially because I feel that it is better that I am well aware of where she is at in the relationship, what she's thinking, what her plans are. Is that impeding on her privacy? I dont think so as she is our child - it is my job after all.
Wanted to know what you do to encourage your DD to open up more and feel comfortable doing so. Whenever I talk to her about sex or her relationship she looks as if she is squirming slowly of embarrassment- And I don't want her to feel this way- I think I am more open to this that my own mother EVER was when I was her age. I want it to be that if she has any doubts, she can feel that she can ask me and tell anything.
