5 Wacky Questions To Ask Your "Nearly Flown" Child

Do you struggle getting your "nearly flown" child's attention to impart wisdom?  Then today's podcast is just what the Dr. ordered.  

Times With Our Almost-Grown Kids Are Changing

Why?  We know we must reach them in this last season but some of the methods we have relied on in our kids younger years are just not as effective now.   

They have grown up, or nearly so.  We need to adapt.  

Get Creative

Communicating with our teens/young adults/college-aged must change.  We parents have to be more creative and practice new ways to start discussions.  

Our "almost grown" kids want to be seen as an adult.  Today's 5 wacky questions do a great job bridging the gap between the past and the future.  

Try New Strategies

In fact, you can use this wacky question strategy on so many topics.  It's a quick listen today, but well worth your time.

In today's parent podcast: (Parenting Your "Nearly Grown" JUST. GOT. EASIER) you will learn: 

  • 5 "wacky" questions specifically designed to tuck in learning AND catch their attention
  • Possible answers to those wacky questions, designed to get your parent teaching up and running
  • you will recognize how to create your own "wacky" questions on topics you'd like to use to engage your "nearly flown" in amazing conversation

Give this strategy a try.  Experiment.  You might be surprised at all the teaching and learning you can sneak in disguised as FUN, FUNKY questions.

Well, that's it for now, dedicated parents.  I applaud your willingness to keep those parent nuggets flowing in this last season.  Are you also struggling with how to introduce major money concepts and yes, money management to them while you still can?  Then, head on over to our "Money Starterplan.  It will show you how to spend just 30 minutes with a few small steps to get your mini-you off to the money management races.  Consider this financial training wheels.

One last tip for today:  find something positive your child did and give them a compliment!  It is entirely possible they've gone throughout this day and not have anything encouraging come their way.  Those sweet comments provide such good fuel to keep them up and running!
