Ask Alice: What Teens Hear When Parents Talk, with author David Thomas

In this episode of Ask Alice, Alice is joined by author, speaker, and counselor David Thomas to discuss an adolescent’s interpretation of some of the simplest questions parents often ask – “Where are you going?”, “What’s wrong?”, and “Have you done your homework?” They each shed light on the different perspectives of boys and girls and hear responses from teens themselves on the most helpful – and annoying – questions that parents ask. David and Alice also provide some practical advice on ways to enhance communication with the teenagers in your life.
