Time to Chat

Hey Sue-Ellen!

Chatting with our boys can be tricky. It is easiest to have conversations in short sessions, and when something else is happening. This takes the intensity and pressure off.

Good times include when you are both in the car, unloading groceries, doing homework, etc. If it feels like just another thing you are talking about, you will have greater success.

Good luck!
