Having better conversations


I want to be able to have more effective conversations with my 13 year old daughter. I notice that we have different primary modes of thinking and being. I recognize that trying to understand her mind doesn’t come “naturally” to me And I want to put in greater effort to listen.

I’m wondering if this model would be useful to get the result I would like.

C:conversation with my daughter
T: I am a good listener
F: open, hopeful
A: engagement
R: closer relationship
