"A BOUNTY OF CREATIVE STARTERS FOR DEEP CONVERSATIONS WITH TEENAGERS!"
Let's face it. Teenagers have a PhD in one-word answers . . . if we don't ask the
In this book, veteran youth expert Jonathan McKee shares 180 creative discussion
starters to help teens open up about issues that matter. You'll also find tips for
interpreting their responses and follow-up questions. From light-hearted to more
serious, these conversation springboards will encourage even the most reluctant
teen to talk about friends, school, values, struggles, and much more. (A great tool
for parents or youth workers!) .
"Get Your Teenager Talking is the perfect tool for connecting with today's teenagers,
a generation that often has a difficult time opening up to adults."
- Dr. Kevin Leman, author of Have a New Teenager by Friday
"Few people understand the teenage world like Jonathan McKee. This book is one of
the most helpful and practical tools I have ever seen to get teenagers talking with
their parents about important topics. Authorities tell us that when parents and
teens have meaningful, value-centered conversations in the home, teens will stay
more engaged with their family, faith, and values. This is a most valuable resource
for parents and those who work with kids."
- Jim Burns, PhD, author of Teenology: The Art of Raising Great Teenagers
and Confident Parenting
"As a parent, this is such a practical tool--it's an arsenal for those of us who
need some prompters to get our kids talking in more than grunts and one-word answers.
Jonathan McKee serves parents with insightful tips on how to stimulate conversation
to provoke meaningful dialogue. Parents, this is the stuff that matters!"
- Doug Fields, executive director of HomeWord Youth & Family at Azusa Pacific University;
co-founder of downloadyouthministry.com
"If your teenager answers you with one-word replies, shrugs, or the occasional eye
roll accompanied with a sigh, buy this book! You'll be on your way--quickly--to
fun, meaningful conversations."
- Vicki Hitzges, international motivational speaker/author
"Calling this book practical is an almost-ridiculous understatement: it's a bounty
of creative starters for deep conversations between teenagers and parents! There
are plenty of helpful, theoretical parenting books on the market; but Jonathan's
book isn't merely one to think about, it's a gift to be used."
- Mark Oestreicher, partner in The Youth Cartel
"Take note, parenting-book authors: this is how to write for today's parents. Rather
than giving us another lecture on how important it is to talk with our kids (big-time
guilt trip), how about giving us some great ideas (180 or so) for starting conversations
with them in a fun and natural way (big-time success!). Well played, Jon McKee!"
- Wayne Rice, pastor to generations at College Avenue Baptist Church (San Diego,
CA); co-founder of Youth Specialties
"We as parents of teens run out of things to say and ask our kids. Fear no more!
If you want fun, clever, and witty ways to engage your adolescent, pick up Jonathan
McKee's Get Your Teenager Talking and let the conversations begin"
