Parent/ Teen Communication Month at Potlatch Jr-Sr High School

Parent Teen Communication Month

Hello parents and community members,

The members of Rays Awareness, an advocacy group consisting of 9 Potlatch high school girls, would like to inform you that we have selected March as Parent Teen Communication Month. We have put together a list of ideas to help encourage communication between parents and their children. We would like to challenge you to take part in our efforts to strengthen this important aspect of the parent/child relationship by trying a new activity listed below everyday. We would also love if you would comment and share with the community the ways you implement communication at home!

  1. Plan one extra (beyond celebrating just birthdays and holidays together) all-family activity just for the purpose of celebrating your family life. During the fun, talk to each member about their impressions of your family life.

  2. At the dinner table, have each person name their favorite part of their day.

  3. Have a family date night! Put the cell phones away and play a game or watch a movie as a family.

  4. Set one night of the week to have a family dinner.

  5. Write a positive note or give a compliment. Ex. put a note in your child’s lunch box or write on the bathroom mirror with a dry erase marker to help brighten their day.

  6. Have at least one conversation with your child when they come home from school or practice before they go off and do their own thing.
