Video conversation
Can you explain why you feel you’ve behaved in aggressive way?
How does that affect you?
Why do you think your parents are the way they are with you?
How do you think they feel when you’ve had an argument or a difficult time
together? How do you feel? What do you tell yourself has happened? How do
you make yourself feel better?
What do you feel your parent doesn’t understand about you? If you were the
parent how would you deal with your own behaviour?
What’s the one thing they could do make things better? What’s the single thing
you could do to make things better?
What do you wish for you and your family? What did you like doing in the past
you’d like to do again?
What do you like about your parent? What do you value about them?
Anything you’d like to ask them or send as a message to them about?
