Your kid actually does want to talk to you.
(About drugs anyway.)

Be available for your children
- Notice times when your kids are most likely to talk — for example, at bedtime, before dinner, in the car — and be available.
Let your kids know you're listening
- When your children are talking about concerns, try to stop what you are doing and listen.
Respond in a way your children will hear
- Soften strong reactions; kids will tune you out if you appear angry or defensive.
