My dad saw this commercial and sent me the link. I love how it captures the conversations parents should have, need to have… and struggle to have… with their pre-teens and teens.
A couple of great things I like:
1. It’s interesting that he doesn’t say everything he thinks. He doesn’t necessary have confidence in his sons’ friends, but he refrains from any criticism.
2. When the dad’s thoughts said, “I’d do anything to keep you safe.”
3. When the kid’s thoughts said, “I love you too, Dad” even though Dad hadn’t verbalized it. The son knew it.
What did you observe?
(Great video to show at a parents meeting and discuss)
