How's Your Day?

Listen

The easiest way into good dialogue with youth is simply asking, how's your day?  Most youth appear suprised when asked and we've learned from our many Indiivdual and Group sessions that youth are often excited to share.
It's simple, close your mouth, open your ears and direct your eyes into the youth who is speaking.  it is ever comforting when youth can feel that they have your undivded atttention and that you're listening.
Next, and as much as youth will allow, always offer thanks for sharing and encouragement, especially when a goal has been accomplished.  On the otherhand listening as the relationship strengtens can lead to questions and that's easiest handled by being open, honest, and offering options to think about.
