Ep. 62: Talking with Teens about Capability
Summer is a great time to start conversations with your teen! Use the extra time with them while they are home to get curious and ask open-ended questions.
To help, we’ve designed this series to be a quick, fun way to get everyone talking. Listen together with your teen, or by yourself. You might be surprised at how willing teenagers are to talk when they get started!
In episode 62, Kelly Fann joins Chris to discuss encouraging teens to improve their current skills and to gain new ones with a growth mindset.
How good do you feel you are at doing things?
Talk through these with your teen after this podcast ends!
- What’s something you feel like you’re good at right now?
- How does it make you feel when you take care of things yourself?
- What’s something you’d like to get better at? How can I help?
