Connect With Her on an Adult Level
As you connect on her level, while remaining yourself (the experienced adult she needs), you can then delve into the many areas on her mind and yours. A terrific place to start is to ask about her friends. While talking about them, she’ll often share her concerns in subtle ways. Listen to what she wants, fears and values -use that as a springboard for conversation. Let her set the agenda based on what’s on her mind today.
