Keep it Simple
You don't need to have a deep, philosophical conversation with your teen to connect. If simply asking how her day was only elicits a shrug and one-worded answer, try asking a more specific question, like what she did in science class that day or how her basketball team is preparing for their upcoming tournament. Having simple, daily conversations will help give you insight into your teen's world and will help her open up about how her everyday life is going.
