Letting Your Children Speak for Themselves

If your child is shutting down and never wants to engage in conversations with you, there is almost always something going on behind the scenes. In this episode, Mark Gregston tackles a tough question sent in by a mom whose son hasn’t been willing to open up to her or a counselor. As a parent, it’s crucial to show your child that you’ll give them a listening ear, without interjecting your opinion or speaking FOR them. Tune in for Mark’s insights!
