Agreed 100%. Young people learn when they're doing the talking. Our taking the time and interest in listening to them encourages their own processing power and creates a healthy setting for developing strong bonds. Thanks for sharing!

Artie I just defer to my young adult kids. They are my guide. They get texts from me that say, "What does (fill in the blank) mean?" and they respond. Of course, that opens the door for unsolicited advice I didn't ask for such as what music to play or not play, what I should and should never say, advice on salary, vacation, how much to tip the pizza dude, or even how to avoid what they perceive as "awkward silence" in our office. Sigh... but love those young kids :) they bring such a great perspective to our thinking.
