Are you a Gen X parent struggling to connect with your Gen Z child?
In this week’s episode of the Great Relationships: Gen X & Gen Z podcast, Sydney (Gen Z) and Deb (Gen X), along with their guest Leeza (Gen Z), explore the challenges faced by both generations and emphasize the importance of creating a safe space for open communication and learning from each other. This week they discuss:
-Avoid assuming that the challenges faced by older generations are more significant than those experienced by Gen Z.
-Create a safe space where your child feels comfortable sharing their thoughts and experiences.
-Ask open-ended questions instead of trying to trap or interrogate your child.
-Balance giving advice with listening and understanding; show empathy towards your child’s perspective.
