I find when we are in the car I find t easier to say something since she can't move away. I encourage her to trust us and be open.... 13 is hard!!!!!

thats a hard one. At 13 they turn off their ears. I usually wait until we are both calm and just talk

My daughter and I are the only girls in the house so I try to relate to her that way, we need to stick together and for that to happen I explain that we need to trust each other and talk openly with each other. She usually softens after that, then we can talk about anything. It is a weird balance between treating them like adults and showing them how and why you make your own decisions. If that helps. ;)
