How to answer the questions?

  • Don’t rush! You don’t need to answer straight away. If it’s not a good time, say so, but remember to answer the question later.
  • Keep to the question. Give them enough information to answer the question, but avoid giving overly much information. Your teenager will ask for more if they want to know more.
  • Be honest. Don’t make up an answer if you are unsure. It’s okay to say: “I don’t know, but I’ll find out for you, or we could find it out together.”
