After less than 30 seconds into my response, he was back to talking about his world and doing so until we said goodbye—probably for the last time.

When I was still at the university, I often analyzed the conversational patterns of parents and their children. The most dysfunctional families were those were parents relied on monologues to interact with their children. A lesson for all of us?
