"My daughter never tells me anything anymore now that she’s in high school! How can I let her know I’m still here for her?"

As our kids get older and seek more independence, it can be tough for parents to adjust to this new, slightly distant version of their child. It feels like only yesterday they were chatty and eager to share with you…but now you’re lucky if you can get more than one syllable from them! This week’s Tips on Teens question comes from a parent who misses connecting with her daughter:

“Ever since my daughter started high school she’s been more and more distant. She used to tell me everything, but now when I ask how school is or how she’s doing all I get is “Fine” or “Okay.” She stays in her room all the time and never wants to talk to me. I feel like I don’t know what’s happening in her life anymore! How can I get her to open up to me again?”
