#TeenTalk Twitter chat: How to talk to your teen with confidence #ad

Talking to your teen – the prospect can unnerve even the most assured parent. But it can be easier and more meaningful than you think. Our #TeenTalk Twitter chat is all about how you talk to your teen with confidence about their challenges, including puberty.

The chat is sponsored by the #TeenTalk campaign, run by Boots UK and P&G. Recent research from Boots UK and P&G reveals shows:

  • 33% of parents wish they could talk more openly with their teen
  • 68% of parents find it difficult to approach puberty topics, some avoiding the #TeenTalk
  • 1 in 5 parents are unsure about how to start the puberty conversation

With the #TeenTalk campaign, Boots and P&G are offering special deals on selected trusted brands through 6 June (products have changed a lot since we were teens!). When you go into Boots, you can also pick up a FREE #TeenTalk Guide on the aisle, with tips on talking to your child more seamless. Go to http://www.boots.com/teentalk for more info.

We want to know:

  • Are you confident about talking to your teen?
  • How and when you talk to your teen to make the conversation easier
  • Tips you would give to other parents trying to talk to their teens
  • Any stories about your #TeenTalk moments, including unexpected joys or the occasional amusing stumble

    Won’t be able to make the #teentalk sadly but just want to put this new concept forward which I think ties in very powerfully. It’s called Girls on Board and it is all about how we talk to girls about their friendship problems which can be such a very difficult and sensitive area. Check out the 5 min explainer video on the website, girlsonboard.co.uk
