VIDEO: What To Do When Your Daughter Clams Up
There are few things more difficult for a parent than trying to connect with a girl who doesn’t want to talk. It’s like being separated by invisible glass. She’s there, and you know the thoughts and feelings are coursing through her — yet you can’t hear what’s happening inside. Getting locked out can leave us in a swirl of guilt, anger, hurt, and frustration.
At Girls Leadership, we know getting a quiet girl to open up is a tall order. We’ve spent a decade of summers living with girls like this, using every tool at our disposal to connect and open up the conversation. We know how fruitless it can feel.
