If you’re a parent, you’ve likely had conversations that have shocked you with how badly they went.
The same kid who asked “why” non-stop at age four suddenly stops talking to you around age 12.

The good news is that better conversations with your kids in your control. Effective communication can be cultivated, learned, and taught.
