This is a pack of cards that can break a log-jam of frustration and silence between generations with humour and curiosity.
Containing 52 questions that are playful and interesting, yet carefully designed to pierce through armour, they offer parents and their teenage children a rare chance to go beyond the usual unsatisfying exchanges and rediscover one another, in an atmosphere of tolerance and fun, as the complicated, intense yet loveable and deserving beings they really are.
1. Parents should introduce the idea of these cards with a lot of mockery at
the cards’ expense. Describe them as ‘silly’, ‘probably ridiculous’ and ‘sort of a waste of time’. Nevertheless, give them a try. It doesn’t have to take too long.
2. Split the pack of cards in two. Place the ‘teenagers’ ones next to the teenagers, and the ‘parents’ ones next to the parents.
3. Alternate who replies, always responding with sincerity and courage.
