“I had a great time with this lesson. I was wanting to talk about this but didn’t want to go to my parents so this helped a lot. The presenter was funny, kind, respectful and I felt comfortable talking with him. I am very thankful for the program.”
“I think it’s good to talk about the dating steps. It’s important to have a healthy relationship.”

Conversation Starters 🗣
Social Skills Life Hacks: The key to good conversation is to try to ask open-ended questions. That means questions that usually require more than a “yes” or “no” answer. Here are some prompts to spark conversation!
1. If you could have any pet, what would it be? 🐕🐠🐈
2. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?🏰
3. What is your favorite place to go on vacation?
4. What sports or hobbies do you enjoy?
5. What’s your favorite food?
6. What are your favorite shows that you would recommend?📽️
7. What movies are you wanting to see?
8. What are you going to do this weekend?🏄
9. What is the silliest fear you have?
10. What song always puts you in a good mood?🎧
Social Skills Pro Tips 💯💯
1. Ask open ended questions; Yes or No questions stop a conversation quickly.
2. Remember the name of the person you’re talking to, and try to use it in conversation so they know you remembered it. This makes them feel important and listened to!
3. Really listen when people talk and ask follow up questions. Encourage others to talk about themselves!
4. What is a question you wish someone would ask you? You could ask another person that same question.
5. Pay attention to your body language! If your arms are crossed or your head is hung, you might be communicating that you don’t want people to talk to you!
