60 Second Conversation Starter

Speaking from the Heart

Valentine’s season is the perfect time to tell your child how much they are loved and to reinforce that their happiness and safety are your top priorities as a parent. You are in good company:

  • 93% of DHS & HPHS families have clear rules about alcohol and drug use (2018 parent survey)
  • During the past year, 67% of District 113 parents discussed the consequences their child would face if they broke the family’s rules against underage drinking and drug use (2018 parent survey)

It’s important to keep conversations low-key and not to worry about getting everything across in one conversation. Many short talks will keep the lines open and prove more effective in the long run.

It’s not one 60-minute conversation. 
It’s 60 one-minute conversations.
