Tips for moms and teen girls communication

Be available, even in busyness.
Listen.
One on one time.
Pass it on journal (us a journal and pass it back and forth to talk about every day things, dreams, ask and answer questions - we did this for a while and really should get back to it but we have the paper route now where the girls usually talk to me)
Do things together (gardening, chores around the house, shopping etc.)

These things foster a sense of togetherness and open up the lines of communication between you and your daughter(s). The main thing is to spend time together so talking can occur.

What do you do with your teen daughter(s)?

    I don't have teen daughters, but can you email this list to me in 10 years so I don't forget it?!?!?! Seriously, best list ever!

    Well, we'd have to put that on my calendar with an alert because I'd probably forget to email it!

    It's gotta be something about being in the car because when the girls and I are driving the paper route their tongues unleash. Guess it might be because they have my undivided attention?!
