How to have an open conversation with a young person
Bullying. Suicide. Online safety. Stress. Concerns like these can be hard to talk about with the young people in your life. But talking can also be an important step to showing them they’re not alone.
Having a frank, open conversation can often give a young person the perspective and compassion they need when things seem to be overwhelming or hopeless, and can help them prepare for the challenges they may face every day.
That’s why Kids Help Phone created this section of our website. Here, you can browse tip sheets, articles, tools and resources with strategies to address some of the most common challenges young people face today. You can use these tools to help the young people you care about. And hopefully, these resources can help you feel better prepared to start a conversation.
