Just about the time when your kids start pushing you away is actually the time that they need you the most!

As parents, we need to be resourceful and outsmart the kids when they become teenagers and start thinking they don’t need us or we aren’t cool anymore!

What other strategies have you used that have worked in encouraging your kids to share?
