It’s true kids say the darndest things, but it’s how you respond that matters. Next time your grandkid blurts out something shocking or just plain dumb, try using the five conversation altering words recommended by Dr. Jeff Meyers. Tell me more about that.
Dr. Myers works with young people every day at Summit Ministries, and he suggests that sometimes the best response to your grandkids is to play dumb and ask questions, even if you already know the answers. Kids need someone to listen to them, even when they don’t know what they’re talking about. While you listen, you might just learn something, too.
