This #digitaldialogue provides an opportunity to create a Teachable Moment.  

How can you get your tween to talk about their emotional lives? Instead of “How does that make you feel?” try, “I can imagine you might be having a lot of feelings. Can you name a few?”  Help them explore what might be beneath the emotion. For example, is their anger a reflection of hurt feelings? Are they feeling frustrated or embarrassed?
