An excerpt from Get Your Teenager Talking: Everything You Need to Spark Meaningful Conversations by Jonathan McKee, published by Bethany House Publishers.

Are you and your favorite teenager having too many conversations like this?

"How was school?"
"Fine."
"Soccer practice?"
"Same as always."
"Anything interesting happen today?"
"Nope."
"Nice talking with you!"

Let's face it. Teenagers have a PhD in one-word answers . . . if we don't ask the right questions.

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.
