======================================================== How to effective communicate with teenagers:
Step 1 : Practice the basics of overall good communication : empathy, flexibility and open-mindedness.
Step 2 : Make yourself available and accessible.
Step 3 : Remain consistent in your answers and reasoning during decision making and disciplining.
Step 4 : Count to 10 before you speak, especially if you are agitated.
Step 5 : Give yourself 10 minutes to make a decision, even if you know what it will be. Your child will come to expect it and not blindside you with changes in plans.
Step 6 : Practice a controlled demeanor and calm tone, even when it's difficult. Avoid being sarcastic or raising your voice.
Step 7 : Learn to apologize.
Step 8 : Have dinner together as a family, every night if possible. Family time generates good feelings among family members, which enhances the likelihood of successfully communicating.
Step 9 : Live the golden rule. [己所不欲勿施予人; ji suo bu yu wu shi yu ren]
