ARE YOU STRUGGLING TO TALK TO YOUR TEEN?
First, let’s be real… Who isn’t?!
Getting the Social Media Addicted Teenager in your life to actually have a conversation with you can seem more like an invitation for heavy eye-rolling. You may be feeling like your teen is fast-forwarding to the end of every conversation while silently scrolling through the latest trendy app. They then only emerge from the dark cave, known as their bedroom, to stock up on snacks and get a quick dose of sunlight. The average teenager sends over 100 texts per day and is statistically more likely to communicate with their friends via some form of messaging like snaps or DM’s versus calling them or speaking to them in person.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Relevant Book for a Relevant Problem I enjoyed this book so much. I especially loved that the author came at this issue of communication and that gap between those who have grown up with social media and those who haven't through a high school teacher's lens. It is clear that social media is an all-encompassing communication tool that can get in the way of verbal communication and interpersonal relationships within a family. I just loved the down-to-earth advice, the engaging way in which the author wrote the book, and the practical steps that can be implemented. I always find books to be filled with fluff, but this book is filled to the brim with valuable content. As a mother of one teen (soon to be looking at four teens) I found it all so helpful. Highly recommend!

Nicole Rice has written both a timely and essential piece to jumpstart verbal communication. Packed with ready-to-use practical strategies this resource will lead the way to a more powerful relationship with your child.
5.0 out of 5 stars I’m a high School football coach, a dad of three, and I like this book This book has helped me understand that as a parent and coach…we don’t always know what teens are thinking and growing up today in the social media world puts a lot of pressure on our kids to try and fit in. Reading this and the real teen quotes and stories, has made me realize that sometimes it’s important to just listen to your kids and try and understand how they feel.
5.0 out of 5 stars Informative and uplifting read! This book was the perfect mix of informative and engaging. Many parenting self-help books I put down after the first few pages because it's information overload! However, this book gave me a relatable, auto-biographical feel that I instantly connected with. The tone was light and humorous and gave me a ton of ideas for spending more quality time with my kids and actually learning how their confusing mind works! Great, fast read.
I really enjoyed reading this book on improving your teen/parent relationships. Best take away advice: Listen more & Talk less. As parents we forget that we also fall into bad habits and are just too busy! Thank you for the gentle reminders on how to do things better and be more effective.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun, Down to Earth Read Filled with witty humor, detailed tips and example stories, Nicole has absolutely blown it out of the water. As someone rapidly approaching "parenting years" (but not so far from removed from the teenage years that I forget what it was like) it was eye-opening to dive into a parent's perspective. Packed with data while offering down-to-earth advice, this is a must read for anyone looking to understand their child better. Open and honest communication is key!
5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful book!! Loved all the information! As a Grandparent of teens and "soon to be teens" this book was very helpful for me. As teens don't think the same way they did way back in my day, I found this book full of helpful thoughts and insights to help me relate better with them. Can't wait to read more books from this author!
"Charming and bursting with information to have a better relationship with your teen in person and through their cell phones."
First kid to recommend the book to their parents.
This book was written for almost anyone who has to figure out how to communicate with a teen, tween or anyone in between, such as:

After applying the dos and don'ts in this book, rest assured, your teen will be saying something like this, "You're freaking me out. I didn't think you understood anything about me." In an ever-changing world that's seemingly digital, you want to grasp how to communicate with the generations to come effectively. Everyone wants the same thing- to see their teenagers happy, confident, and smiling.
Nicole Rice has spent the last 27 years as a certified high school technology teacher, the daughter of two high school teachers herself, and trains a new set of students each fall into becoming the district’s expert geek squad.
She received her Bachelor’s in Marketing and Communication from the University of Maryland and her Masters in Reading from SUNY Oneonta. In the summers she and her husband, (aka her high school sweetheart) have a marina on a lake in upstate New York. They raised their two daughters who grew up working together in the general store and now both live in California but still call and tell her everything. In her classroom, Mrs. Rice spends six hours a day with technology and aspiring teenagers, and as they become older teens think their parents are outdated and “they just don’t get it.”
That’s why she loves providing just a little inspiration through her high school book series with simple questions and cheat sheets that parents and anyone can use to spark a conversation with teenagers. The number one thing she finds as teens grow up in the pace of today’s technology is that teens are actually a lot smarter than many adults give them credit for if they would just step back and listen.
She has gathered the most common quotes from teens and shares them with you. Revealing that teens really do want to spend time together and talk to adults to help them survive life.
