Best TED talks to Watch with Your Tweens and Teens
Are you looking for fun ways to connect and start conversations with your adolescent?
Would you like to teach values to your kids but don’t know how without them tuning you out and having them say, “Oh Mom, not another lecture!”
I’ve found TED talks to be a great way to open the door to meaningful conversations with my kids.
Here are the best TED talks to watch with your tween or teen.
I tested them with my daughter who oftentimes rolls her eyes at me making these suggestions. She couldn’t help herself when I was watching “Own Your Face,” by Robert Hoge and actually sat down next to me captivated (priceless message in such an image obsessed world).
I believe these videos will catch your tween and teens attention, make you both think and create some interesting conversations (however brief they might be).
