Let them.express how their day was .you messed up their day ,who took advantage of them who made them feel low with all this you will be able to connect with his pain and fears and he will feel listened to.
One of the therapist wrote
" Try not to let him scrape by with an impersonal answer like “it sucked” and instead encourage him to use “I” statements. Then, follow up with more open-ended questions."
